Birthday Flowers

Hi Everybody!
It's time for a new challenge at Addicted To Stamps.
Darlene chose "FLOWERS"  as the theme for challenge #174.

Here's what that inspired me to create:

Here's what I used:
I love this big bold sentiment from Picket Fence Studios and I thought these flowers 
from Simon Says Stamp went well because of the black bold outlines.
The only problem was that I wanted the flowers to curve a little more to fit around the letters....
so fussy cutting to the rescue!! 
A little tip I learned was after fussy cutting run a black marker around the edges...waa-laa.. then you don't see any white spots and it looks like you cut it out perfectly!
I hope you like it.

'till next time,


  1. You've made a beautiful card for our challenge Doni. I love the combination of the lovely flowers with the bold sentiment.
    Greetings Miranda
