Circles of Blue

My Mom's friend's birthday is coming up and her favorite color is blue, so I made this card for my Mom to give her.  It was made following a sketch at Friday Sketchers Blog (which I think I may be too late for) and also the exact same sketch was one of the sketches for RAQs Challenge on the Cricut message board.  I will also post this card on the Paper Cutz Challenge as it is "Your Choice" week.
The papers I used all came from the DCWV Summer stack from last year.  The circles were cut from George, my go to cartridge for shapes and the flowers I sprayed with Glimmer Mist and crumbled  slightly and added a glitter brad to the centers.
Then I remembered that I had the Verve Stamp Birthday Wishes stamp that went perfectly with this card and paper.  If you are not familiar with there stamps be sure and click the above link and check them out, they are fabulous.  I stamped it and heat embossed it with a very dark blue.

Thanks for stopping by, and I would love to hear your comments.
