Framed Flowers - Seize the Birthday

A brand new month and a brand new sketch at the Seize the Birthday challenge this week!  We want to see your feminine cards this go round.  Be sure and stop by the challenge blog and see all the inspiration from the DT.    We're being sponsored by Uniko Studio!  Check out their store - fabulous stamps and papers.


Those flowers and the butterfly make me think that Spring is just around the corner now!  Hooray!!  I used a couple of stamps from Watercolor Trio (SU) for this birthday card....added a bit of DP and a tiny butterfly with a pearl.  I've framed it out using the Tulip embossing folder from SU, cut down to a size to fit the image.  I haven't used this folder much because it always seems to be larger than what I want.  I saw on Pinterest how to cut it down (here), so tried it and it seemed to fit my image just like I wanted it to.

Great sketch AND a great sponsor for this challenge!






Thanks for stopping by............and be sure and check out the Seize the Birthday challenge!

Oooo, LOVE this card Lynn! Gorgeous stamp and wonderful embossing. Thanks so much for the link to the blog showing us how to cut down the frame folder. That's a great tip, and I know I'll use it.

Such a beautiful card - I've been so busy recently that I've not been able to visit the blogs I follow much - I've just ordered this frame how do you cut it down I'm curious to know? Best wishes Lesley x

The blue and green flowers on the white background really pop and I love the green paper border along the side...this is beautiful, Lynn!!!!

Dawn Easton said...

Lynn, this is BEAUTIFUL! Love how spring like it feels! Your border edge is perfect! I must learn how to do that! Thanks for the inspiration!

Marilyn said...

This is a pretty card. Classy and elegant and a great birthday card. I like how you have the strip of green down the side too.

Monica said...

This is a SUPER colour combo, Lynn. And I thought the DP was actually ribbon since you are a ribbon queen. It looks fab. The image has such dreamy look to it and it sits in so well in the embossed cardstock. Very pretty.

OK, I liked your froggie card, it was adorable. But now THIS one...this is my kinda style (and appreciate the link on how to cut down the folder. I'm always wanting to do that, dunno how). This card is so very pretty & springlike...very fresh in the blues & greens against the white. That EF was great with this image. TFS & for the link. Hugs
