Birthday Wishes

I did this card for a combination of a lot of challenges.  Whimsie Doodles is doing a Red & White Challenge and Sweet Sketch Wednesday is the sketch I used for this card.  This is my FREE Whimsy Doodles image that I chose this week when I won a "guess the new images" contest.  How sweet is "Flowers for Leah"??  Cute girl image and flowers, too....that's my style!!  I printed, colored and cut out the image.  I love the red gingham paper and the embossed white panel.  I am a little embarassed to say that this is the first time that I have used the flower die cut and it is probably one of the first ones that I bought a few years back.  I hope you like my card and it gives you some inspiration.
