Flower Shop Meets Work of Art Birthday Card

Oh my gosh, I thought I posted this card yesterday.  I didn't post anything yesterday!!!  I'm losing it!!! LOL

I found this card on Pinterest.  I am sorry but I do not know the original artist of this card.  I had it on a board on Pinterst and once I got it made I deleted the link.  Don't ask me why I did that!!  UGH.  Anyway, if this is your design or if you know who made this card, please let me know so I can give them credit and a link back to their beautiful work.  (7-17-14 The original card was made by Nikki at "My Sandbox."  Check out her card.  I LOVE the leaf stamp she used.)

I did change the card a little.  I didn't have the leaves that were used on the original card.  I wished I had, they are really pretty. I used the "Fabulous Flourishes" set.  And I also used the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" happy birthday words on my card.  Oh and I added some pearls to the center of each flower.  Other than that it's pretty much the same exact card.

Other than how fun and colorful the card was that attracted me to it, it was also the folded piece of card stock that was used as the "spine" of the card.  It's a 2" piece of card stock folded in half.  The front panel was taped to the top of that folded piece and the inside card part was taped to the inside of it.  The front panel was cut 4" x 5-1/4" while the inside part was cut 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".  I just love how that looks on the card.  It makes me want to make more cards like that.  You can also save a lot of colored card stock by making your cards like that.  It gives the card that bit of color while it mostly consists of a half sheet of white card stock!  Pretty cool.

This was a VERY fun card to make.  I LOVE the flowers, just stamp and punch!!! And the same with the butterfly!!  You know how much I LOVE easy cards like that!

Thank you ever SO much for visiting today,
