Happy Birthday Jan Marie



Let’s light the candles and strike up the music, the owner of Flourishes – Jan Marie Caruso – is celebrating a birthday and we’re helping her by getting the party started! Why not leave some love on her blog HERE and then start to hop on through the Flourishes team members who are honoring her special day! Happy Birthday Jan Marie!
Happy Birthday Jan2
 

 
 I used the set called Let Them Eat Cake.. This was my first official set as a Design Team member.  I used this set one year ago today for my very first post. I feel so blessed to be among the talent on this team but most of all I appreciate the friendships here. Happy birthday Jan Marie.. I hope your day is filled with many blessings. I  chose Flourishes
"signature" colors for my card..

 
Happy Birthday Jan.

I stamped my image on Flourishes Watercolor Paper with ink and embossed so I could watercolor the frosting.  I used the Black Mosaics for embellishments on top of my ribbon. I added a little rolled flower to the top.  
Don't forget our Gamblers Sale.. All sale items are being discounted more and more each week..

Now check out what the rest of all the Flourishes teams have created in honor of 
Jan Marie's Birthday....
