A Fabulous Florets Birthday

I thought I would play with the vanilla flowers before they retire at the end of the month.  I haven't heard anything yet whether or not they are in the new catalog.  I am hoping they will be but just by change, I'm going to use them on a few more cards before the end of the month.  

I used the Fabulous Florets set for the flower stem.  It was the easiest stamping I've ever done!!!  Just stamp the stem and put it aside!  It doesn't get much easier than that.  Next I cut of three flowers from the ribbon of flowers and I rubbed the fronts of them into the soon to retire Regal Rose ink pad.  

My background paper is from the valentine papers in the spring mini, which is soon to retire too!  I thought it would make a pretty background on a birthday card.  It would have also been a nice background for a Mother's Day card too!

The words are from my computer.  You can buy the sheets of words here.  They are ready to print and fit the 1-1/4" circle punch and the oval punch for layering.  There's 10 different occasions other than birthday.  Each page has just one occasion and you can punch out 24 words off one page.  You can print out as many sheets as you like for yourself or for classes.  

You can have a lot of fun with this card. You can make your own ribbon flowers.  If you don't have these flowers,  you can find lots of tutorials on You Tube and elsewhere on the net.  You can even use punched flowers in layers to make this card.  See, lots of possibilities too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
