Happy birthday

I had time to make some cards today and I decided to play along with Becky's Compose a Card #7.



I guess I didn't really follow the directions or inspiration piece to closely though, oops! I used Rustic Cream as a base and my patterned paper is green, not yellow! The flower outlines are cut out of black felt using the Beautiful Blooms #1 Die. This was definitely a challenge for me, but I'm glad I gave it a shot!

Happy Easter to those who celebrate it!
Melissa

That is beautiful! I was confused by the measurements on this, but you weren't! Love that! I don't think that yellow was defined as being required in the patterned paper, so I think you are good! Your card is just beautiful.

Melissa, you make the prettiest cards! Each time I visit here I think, "Oh, that's so pretty!" Bbut I can't type the same thing every time, so I try to find something else to say! I love your take on Becky's challenge, and think this card is just lovely. I like the row of rhinestones under the sentiment...I'm too chickne to use that many on ONE card! You are brave sister!
