Happy Birthday Jan Marie!

Today, February 25th, Jan Marie Caruso, the fearless and creative force behind Flourishes, is another year older... what a wonderful thing to celebrate!

I wish I would have been able to join the team and make a card for the hop... but I'm still happy to show you now the card I made for her! You can also join all of us and simply be inspired by the photo below and create a card for Jan. One randomly drawn winner will get a 25 dollars gift certificate to the Flourishes store, just for playing along!

Jan may be the head of this company but one thing she doesn't get a ton of is happy mail from customers using her stamps. Let's change that for her birthday and flood her with some creative "love" by sending her your Berry Sweet Birthday Blog Hop creations! Here's the address so you can pop them in the mail!

Jan Marie Caruso
4140 Lyric Lane
Pensacola, FL 32514

Don't forget to link your creation here. And here's my card:

I wanted to make a card with vellum and so I chose one of my favorite stamp set, Hearts & Flowers. I added a few layers under the vellum flowers. The yellow stamped layer is made with the Love and Lace set. The sentiment on the tag is from the Mix-n-Mugs set.

Happy Birthday Jan Marie!! I wish you a wonderful day!! Big hugs!
