SNSS April Release Mini Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the SNSS Mini Blog Hops celebrating the April Release sets! Today we have two sets that will give you so many options for making birthday cards!
I've used Birthday Innies for a beautiful birthday verse and Script Birthdays for the banner sentiment.
My card is also for the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today - it's Ellen Parker, aka ebparker, and I was inspired by her card found HERE.
I stitched the main panel onto a framing panel and then added some orchids with tiny pearls.
Supplies include:
Lifestyle Crafts Inverted Squares Nested Dies
Cheery Lynn Designs Fancy Flourish die
MFT Color Box Black Licorice ink
MFT Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics

Here's one more card made with Birthday Innies and inspired by a card in Ellen's gallery.
I stamped some words of the sentiment in different colours and popped them up for emphasis.
I love the font on this lovely birthday verse! 
The image is from the just released fabulous set Precious Poppies.
