Happy Birthday to my Very Dear Friend

One of my dear friend's birthday is next month and I made this card for her featuring Mariko by Sister Stamps. I love this image, just perfect for any gift-giving occasion.  For some added dimension, I added a couple of cute little birds and a zig-zag die cut on the grass.  You may need to zoom in to see it since it's green on green.   :-)

For this card I used these fun items:
DP by Lauderdale 
Sentiment by Hero Arts
"Leafy Branch" die by Memory Box from Island Scrapbooking
Scallop punch by EK
Zig-zag die by Sizzix
Bird stamps by Lawn Fawn from Island Scrapbooking

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bizzy Becs - "July Challenge - Anything Goes"
One Stop Craft Challenge - "Challenge 234 - Summer Colours"
Delicious Doodles - "Challenge 44 - All About the Scenery"
Sister Act "Challenge 15 - Anything Goes"

Gorgeous card - love that branch die!
Thanks for playing at the ABC Christmas Challenge, but I'm afraid your entry does not qualify for the prize draw as it's not a Christmas project.
