Lacy Labels birthday card

Yet another September birthday card! I've been under the weather the past few days and haven't created anything and since I vowed to post everyday, I'm just going back into my stack.

I had just gotten the Lacy Labels cartridge, which I really had no interest in getting until I met Pamela at the Circle meet up. She had shown me the beautiful cuts and I just had to have it! So one month later, while browsing in Wal Mart, there it was, so I got it.

It really does have a lot of pretty cuts on it. I played around and for some reason this cut jumped out at me. Maybe because I love tulips.

I found this paper in my stack and honestly have no idea where it came from. I'm thinking it might have been in one of my stacks and then my daughter cut them into 6x6 pieces. There was about 6 different papers (4 of each), all in the yellow/brown/pink colors.
I cut the striped background down to the 5x5 to fit my card - I love doing square 51/4" x 5 1/4" cards! Then I cut the flowered background at 3", then the tulip ring at 2 1/2". I then cut out a smaller circle so I could stamp Happy Birthday and pop dotted that so it would stand out. I added liquid pearls, some crystal tulips and sheer yellow ribbon.
