Every Bit Pattern

Limited Supply Challenge #222
Happy Friday everyone !!!
Today is a wonderful day-my DH's birthday !!! I woke up early to get his present ready and signed the card I made 2 days ago. He ended up going to work today-but we get to celebrate tonight. My sister already called him and did a " Marilyn" song. He got a chuckle out of that.
Somebody else is celebrating his birthday, his twin sister so we will not forget to say HB.
I did this pretty simple card for the Limited Supply Challenge-only one cardstock and the rest-Pattern papers only. The flowers were done with paper piecing, the leaves were die cut and the vase from the Wide Oval punch. I just cut the top and bottom part and added the grosgrain ribbon.

Paper: Whisper White, Rockability,Sweet Slumber Specialty papers and Urban Oasis
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: jumbo brads, black grosgrain ribbon
Tools: Crop-a-dile, dimensionals, wide oval punch, 1/2"circle punch , Leaves die cut, Big Shot machine
