A Magical Birthday

Greetings to all this Memorial Day!

Playing along with Inspired by All the Little Things, 
and this inspiration photo

Sometimes an idea takes bloom, and you just have to 
go with it. That was the case with this card.

Just a bit of ink needed, on the tips of the daisies, Amethyst Allure (PTI). 
The rest all die cut and gold emboss tipped. 
I used the new die from Poppystamps called Ragged Daisy. 
There is also a sprig called Massa Leaf Background (Poppystamps).
Sentiment: Fairy Greetings (Poppystamps).
 Cardstock PTI, except for the gold stripe vellum (DCWV).

Hope you're enjoying the long weekend.
Gardened this morning, crafted this afternoon, and swimming later!

Before you go, check out our newest

16 new ducklings!
Mama was MIA for a whole month. Finally found her nest, and took her food.
She came out with her brood Sunday after church.

So glad the weather is warm! Much better for the little ones.
Honestly, I spend half the day checking on them!
