May all your birthday wishes come true

Hi everyone! It's the first of May already and here's a wish for a wonderful week coming up! It's time for another fun challenge over at My Crafting Stories and I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #5 - Flowers! We're being sponsored this month by Angie's Digital Stamps, so come play with us! It's a super easy challenge this time... we want to see some flowers on your project! ;)

I chose the super cute 'Lila Holding Flowers' digi for my all-pink birthday card. Isn't she adorable?! I used three coordinating papers and cardstock for the background along with a pink special event ticket from my stash, along with my new all-time favorite stitched dies (oval ones this time) to cut and layer the image.

I created the gorgeous pink double loop bow from checkerboard satin ribbon. Love, love, love! I got the awesome flower punch a couple months ago to create my own flowers and hadn't used it yet, so it definitely came in handy to use for this project!

The inside is embellished with a layered hand-cut flag from an additional pattern in the paper pack and a stamped birthday sentiment. What a fun project!

Happy to enter this sweet birthday card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock, Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo cardstock (#115320), Stampin' Up! Brights Designer Series Paper Stack (#138434)
