A Summer Birthday


Now whether it looks like it or not, this is a flower!!! I've seen several cards in "blogger-land" with flowers made in this fashion and so thought I'd try it. Why is it that everyone else's always seem to look a little bit better! Actually, I was pretty satisfied with this one. Kinda different anyway.

This is for the Eyelet, Ribbon, Paper, Oh My...challenge. We were to follow the sketch and create two cards accordingly. I can't post the second card just yet (although it has been sent in for the challenge) - the reason being, it's being sent to a super lady that did something very, very nice.

The sentiment is from Well Scripted by SU. I used Summer Sun, Creamy Caramel, Garden Green, and Tangerine Tango paper.

Thanks for stopping by.............

Hi Lynn, I think your flower is stunning! This was so creative of you, well done! Nice having all those cutters, you can make some amazing cards without having to use stamps. Nice for a change. Take care, Sharon p.s. The sentiment font is so elegant!
