Painted Petals Happy Birthday

I think this is my favorite set from the Occasions Catalog.


This aperture piece was sitting in the box and seemed perfect to frame the image.

I cut the image "out of the box" leaving some leaves and the bud to fussy cut.
I loved the way it could hang out of the frame.

The little banner looked kind of lost so I stamped a few flowers on it
to jazz it up.

is celebrating their 6th birthday.

I love the bright colours of the flowers and how you've added them to the sentiment banner as well.

I have this set too Bonnie, and it is a NBUS for me. lol I so need to get my sets out and start playing with them. Perhaps when life slows down some. I love how your card turned out! The "window" is fabulous with the flower showing though and some fussy cut to hang over. I love the thin black frame, as it makes the flowers pop even more. Your banner is just so cute with the flowers framing it, love it! Hugs, Brenda

Susan said...

A perfect card to make when your azaleas are beginning to bloom - mine are probably a few weeks away, but I have one the colour of your lovely blossom on the card. Love the way they are framed and some blossoms and leaves are coming out of the frame!

Greta said...

Love that technique, which I never think to do. This is gorgeous, Bonnie!

Gorgeous card! The embossed background is neat and somehow really goes with this image. I just love how you have bits of your bouquet sticking outside the aperture!
