Birthday Bouquet for Kristen


Today over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations our theme is "Flower Power". 

My birthday card is a shout out to our Going Grey with Scrap-Creations owner and my good friend, Kristen as it's her birthday today.  Happy Birthday my friend!

 I'm not going to lie to you, I love flowers but this one was hard for me as I has been trying to combine my friend Jeanne's Mix-ability challenge on SCS to hand cut circle flowers.  I cut out about 3 different sets of different flowers and nothing was coming together like I wanted it to.

Finally, this weekend while browsing the color challenges I came across the current Dynamic Duo's color challenge and decided some patterned paper flowers would work well.  The flowers are some of my My Mind's Eye Ruby patterned paper and I drew my stems and leaves on myself.  I had some ribbon scraps and added that to my bouquet.

The sentiment is from Sweet Stamp Shop's Simple Sentiments set. (try saying that multiple times)

Hope you will join us at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations and show us your flower power.

What a fun bouquet! The flowers remind me of lollypops and who wouldn't want a bouquet of those! Thanks so much for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week!

I love this card Kim, wonderful bouquet !!! I saw it last week-end on my mobile phone but I couldn't let any message at that time. Your two last cards are beautiful too and really well done... There is always a lovely detail on each, and finitions are always perfect. Even if clean cards are not my style a priori, I often appreciate yours ! Coco xx
