Congratulations Card!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is having a great start to the new year!!  It has been great to get back to my crafts and my regular routine!  But it was also great to take a break and see family for a week.
The card I made today turned out so cute!!
I love the blue color scheme!  And the little birdie digital stamp is just so cute!  I printed him off twice and colored him in blue with a few green feathers for accent.  I embossed the back border with my Spellbinders Flower Silhouette template and then inked some blue on the details to help them stand out.
I tried something new with the sentiment.  I printed it first and then used my new Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge to cut out the frame.  I was surprised that it worked out on my first attempt!  It's even centered in the frame!! The floral embellishments are also cut from the Lacy Labels cartridge.  I glued some jewels in the center of the flowers and inked some dots around the swirls for accents.
I also decorated the interior.
I just love this card!  It was a great way to get back into my cards!
