Happy "belated" Birthday Marybeth!!!!

Today a group of wonderful ladies and friends are sending a TON of Super SWEET (slightly belated :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY wishes to our dear friend Marybeth over at
Marybeth's Time for Paper!
Marybeth is just one of the sweetest bloggers on the web!!!!  She always has such wonderful things to say about everyone's projects and she extends the hand and heart of friendship in all that she says and does.  I feel blessed to know her and call her friend!  Happy Birthday (a little bit late) Marybeth!!  You are a true blessing in my life!!!
May God shower your life with blessings this year and always!

I love Marybeth's design style!  She has a fresh and clean approach with wonderful little touches that make her cards special each time!  For example I love her use of sequins and embellishments!  They always add that sweet extra touch that makes me oooh and ahhh when I visit her blog and see her beautiful cards.   : )

This card is for you Marybeth!!!
I used my new Papertrey Ink "Scrolling Script" stamp set and dies for the "Wish Big" sentiment and focal point.  And I also wanted to use my new Lil Inker Circle Dies as I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them so much!!!!
The little cream banner behind the sentiment panel was made with a Cheery Lynn Designs Die.  And the border at the bottom is a die from Impression Obsession.  
 I love the swirls of these sentiments!  :)
I finished the inside of the card with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle mat in pink and a Happy Birthday sentiment from Studio G (not pictured).  And I just had to add a little bit of "Diamond" stickles to the front of the card to finish it off in style.  And the pearls were the final touch!

 A big thank you to our friends Joyce and Cathy for organizing this lovely "Happy Birthday" blog hop for our dear Marybeth!  I hope you enjoy hopping around to see all of the birthday goodness that awaits!  You should have arrived here from Jeanne's blog and I am sending you off to visit with Kara.

Here are all of the links in case you get lost along the way:
