{Our Daily Bread} Birthday Pansies

Good morning!  Would you like a cup of tea?  I'm so enjoying my time as a guest designer for Our Daily Bread this month, and today I have a tea and flower themed birthday card to share.

I used my distress markers to watercolor the sweet pansy-filled teacup from the Our Daily Bread Designs Birthday Blessings set for today's card.  I added a strip of paper from the Heart and Soul Collection across the bottom to hold my greeting, then camouflaged the seam with some pink seam binding.  The black mat makes the picture stand out a little more and the rhinestones draw your eye from the buds in the saucer to the flowers themselves and then up to the corner of the card.  A simple touch to complete the look!

Have a blessed day!
