Bird And Burlap Happy Birthday

Good morning my lovely readers! I'm starting off this week sharing a card I made for my mother in law. I've been wanting to try a blue, kraft and white color scheme for a while. I love the soft, earthy combination: it reminds me of sea, sand and sky.
I hand rolled some burlap ribbon into a flower and topped it with a beautiful brad. I did have to use hot glue to fasten it to the card because it was so bulky!
