A Special Birthday Hop for Flourishes Jan Marie!

Light the candles, cue the music and get ready for a little bit of birthday fun! It will SOON be a very special lady's birthday and so we rallied the troops to send some birthday wishes her way a little early! On Monday, February 25th, Jan Marie Caruso, the fearless and creative force behind Flourishes will be another year older -- what a wonderful thing to celebrate! So, we've asked Flourishes' designers from all of our teams to join us to help make this day super special with a......
Here’s the scoop, there’s a way YOU can help Jan celebrate and win some Flourishes stamps as well! HOW? Simply be inspired by the photo above and create a birthday card for Jan. Just that simple! We just love creative challenges at Flourishes and so, why not usher in another one! One randomly drawn winner will get a $25 gift certificate to the Flourishes store, just for playing along! You have until next Thursday at 6PM EST to enter and we’ll draw and announce a name next Friday, right here on the Flourishes blog! Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, and if you don’t – play along and wish Jan a Happy Birthday anyway! If you upload to SCS, please use the key word FLLCBDAY13. And, once you are done with your creation, don’t forget to link it up below using our Inlinkz widget!
Happy Birthday Jan! I hope your day is filled with much love & surprises, surrounded by friends and loved ones! 
My card is made using some dp from MME and using the new release of Roses Are Red, accented with the newly released Victorian Oval Die set. The image is colored with Copics using the Lenten Rose collection. The sentiment is the Inside and Out set Happy.  I finished it with some self adhesive pearls and silk ribbon.
The inside is finished using the same dp's  and finishing sentiment from Inside and Out Happy.
One extra note? Jan may be the head of this company but one thing she doesn't get a ton of is happy mail from customers using her stamps? Let's change that for her birthday and flood her with some creative "love" by sending her your Berry Sweet Birthday Blog Hop creations! Here's her address so you can pop them in the mail!
