A SWIRLY HAPPY BIRTHDAY !

Hello my lovely blogging friends - I do hope you are all safe and well, and escaping the heavy rainfall.
********
Just popping by with a card for  this week's challenge at  LESS IS MORE. Chrissie and Mandi would like to see swirls on our projects, and it's also everyone's favourite - ONE LAYER ONLY week!  Have to admit, I quite enjoy the challenge of using only one layer - it keeps my brain cell moving!
***********
(The stamping detail is much clearer when you click the pic.)

I love this looooooong Happy Birthday sentiment from Hot Off The Press, (had it for years) and it combines swirls and sentiment all in one beautiful image. 
I stamped the little Crafty Secrets swirly heart to add a finishing touch, then attached a tiny silver brad at the top of the heart. 
The cardstock is SU Pink Pirouette, cut to a DL size.  
Ink - Black Archival.
Lines dry embossed above and below the sentiment.

Love to all ~

Your flourish looks beautiful stamped onto pink card tock, Sylvia. Very elegant and classy.
I think we both have the same set of stamps...I'm almost sure mine were once a TSV on QVC. There are three sets of lovely stamps - Flourishes, stitches and sentiments xx
