Birthday Wishes

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend! I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a wee bit of birthday inspiration for a dear friend's special day. ♥︎

Speaking of birthdays, I was blessed with some amazing crazy gifts on Friday for mine and I couldn't wait to put some to use!
My focal point is made up of dreamy Sue Wilson dies (Maddie and Lauren), which were part of a gift! I love them so much. My friend loves elegance and sweetness, so I paired beautifully ruffly white blossoms with darling Rose Pink roses. Isn't that a gorgeous shade of pink? ♥︎ It is perfect for my Maja Design papers. The heart paper is from Vintage Baby, while the rest are from Vintage Summer Basics.
I continue to be enamored with the relatively new White Lotus flowers... the abundance of sunshiny yellow nestled in the centers is irresistible. ♥︎ I have nestled it alongside a Chrysanthemum, which has long been one of my all-time favorite WOC blooms. 
For the center detailing, adorable miniature sweetheart blossoms accompany Rose Pink roses, to which I added a tiny trail of pearls. I hope she loves it.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥︎
