Birthday Wishes…

My weekend just flew by, there was so much squeezed in that at the end of the day on Saturday I could not believe how much had been done.


Friday night we had our fortnightly stamping get together and I took my limited supplies, a layout out and the stamp sets as I had an idea of what I wanted to do, but you know sometimes it just does not come together.


So I tried again.


I was trying to use the sketch layout from Clean and Simple Sketches with the Colour Challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.


   2012 Create Challenges-005


I have seen so much done with the Blossom Party Die but have not had a chance to use it yet.


In the end that was what I need to make everything come together to create my card.


I used Concord Crush for the base card and layered the die cut the flowers.






Stamp set: Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess set)

Card: Concord Crush, Pool Party, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Ink: Concord Crush

Accessories:  Blossom Party Die, Circle Ice Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



If you have read some of my older posts you will know that I love ‘bling’, so I have used a lilac colour Rhinestone Brad from the Circle Ice set for the centre of the flowers.  You can just see the touch of colour in the Rhinestones in the photo.


I struggle sometimes to make a clean and simple card so I am happy with the result plus it did not take long to make.


This card has been linked to the following challenges found at:
