LRW #144 -- Girlfriend's Card

Is it just me, or is this summer flyin' by????  Can't believe it's Wednesday again already!!!
Time for another Little Red Wagon challenge my friends!!

 This week Dee has challenged us to create a card for a girlfriend.  

Easy peasy, right?  Anything feminine works, right?
Dee's birthday is this month, so why not make a birthday card to boot!
When Papertrey Ink recently released their vase dies, I thought they looked great on cards,
 but at the same time, I thought,  "Heck, I can free cut my own!", and that's just what I did.
 I wanted to try the vase with my PTI "Year of Flowers" stamp set, and here's how it turned out:
I may still order the set of Vase dies, but for now, this will do. 
 Since I took this photo, I added some glossy accents to the vase to make it look like glass (camera battery is dead right now, so I can't take a photo).  Believe me, it looks good!!

We all need a Girlfriend birthday card on hand, so join in the fun and participate in this week's challenge.
Be sure to check out with the rest of the LRW design team has created for some inspiration.

Thanks 4 your time!
