Happy Birthday!

My cousin called this morning and invited me over for a little get-together this afternoon to celebrate my aunt's 83rd birthday.  Of course, me being me, didn't have a card already prepared.  I turned to my go-to Cricut Art Philosphy cartridge and came up with this card.  I was visiting Terry Ann Diack's blog and she cut these flowers for a mini album and I knew I had to use them for something.   When I was trying to come up with a quick card idea, I thought of these flowers.  The flowers are on page 50 (flower8) and the branch is on page 35 (branch2).  I cut the branch at 2" and the flowers and layers at 1.75".  I used the Dotty for You paper pack and Lagoon ink.   The sentiment stamp is one that comes in the Cricut bundle.  I placed a white layer on top of the white card base and distressed the edges.  I think I might add more pearls to the top right and bottom left corner.  What do you think?

Now, do I have time to put together a little card set as a gift?  Hmm, better get going.


  1. Oh my Gosh Sandra, I just LOVE THIS CARD! So Pretty...thanks for adding the cutting dimensions, I'm definitely going to make this!
