Happy Birthday Ros

Happy Saturday all!  How is your week-end going so far?
Mine started off today with a trip to IKEA, bought a couple of cream coloured pillows with a nice black leaf outline print on them...great pricing.
I saw over on the City Crafter Challenge Blog that it was Ros's birthday.  Well, this gal is such a sweet and dear blog friend, always quick to post a comment (there are a few of you out there and I appreciate each one of you!) that I really wanted to make a card for her.  I am joining in with the blog team members in wishing Ros the very best year ever!
For my card, I started with this K and Co. cream and black vine print paper that I have treasured for a couple of years now.  I think it is quite elegant and fitting for Ros, she makes such beautiful cards!  Herb log banner has some bluebirds in it and I wanted to incorporate that element with this tiny bird from Magenta and simply coloured with Copics.  I placed a rather large cork heart on the front panel and added my stamped PTI sentiment onto a cream Memory Box die cut that I found on my desk.  These dies from MB (a set of 3 I believe)are really darling and I have misplaced or lost them.  I am hoping that they will turn up one day.  The stamped flower is from an older set that I purchased from Technique Tuesday.  I cut this out from the kraft cs and layered it onto a Memory Box die cut wreath that I cut from a very thin sheet of cherry wood.  To finish off the flower, I added a crocheted cotton flower and topped it with a Stampin up flower and a lacy button with a blue feather tucked under.  The buttons in the left hand corner are some vintage-y ones that I had in my stash and I simply threaded them with a length of black twisted thread.  
That's my card for Ros...hope you like it sweet friend!
Wishing you a truly fabulous year filled with all good things!
