Craft Hoarders Anonymous - Happy Birthday Card

Hello Friends,
Welcome to the October Craft Hoarders Anonymous Hop! You should be coming to my blog from Barbara's BlogAfter visiting me, hop over to Christy's Blog next. To start at the beginning of the hop, and for the full list of Bloggers, go to Gloria's Blog.

I started by creating a 6" x 6" card base from natural white cardstock. For the next layer, I cut a 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" square using designer paper, I distressed the edges and adhered to card. I cut several smaller layers by tearing the designer paper and then adhering to card using foam tape.
I die cut the flowers and leaves using Spellbinders Flower Play die set and designer paper. I shaped the flowers, then colored the edges of the flowers with distress inks and adhered to card with glue. I embellished the center of flowers with rhinestones.
The small leaves were die cut with Spellbinders Sprigs die and the sentiment was die cut with Happy Birthday Garland. I used twine for the bows.


Other Supplies: Neenah Papers Natural White Cardstock, Prima Marketing Art Journal Pad, Rhinestones, Rangers Distress Inks, Twine.
