A Flower Patch Birthday

I don't play with this fun "Flower Patch" very much. I LOVE the whole concept of all of the dies that match the set.  No more cutting.  I don't know what it is but I would still rather use a punch than a die.  I think it comes down to me being lazy.  I would have to get up, go over to my work counter, put the die on the magnetic platform, sandwiched between the plates, and crank the machine.  It doesn't sound like a lot of work or effort, and it really isn't.  Plus I can cut two layers at a time if needed.  I don't know why but I would still rather punch!!!  

Okay, let's talk about today's card.  I used Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Wild Wasabi, Pear Pizzazz, and Daffodil Delight ink.  I set the flower in place using Dimensionals on each layer.

The words are from the "Wetlands" set.  And this card is very boring and blah looking.  After I got it all put together I thought it should have a layer of Bermuda Bay behind it.  Well, I tried to remove the flower but those Dimensionals stick SO well!  I even thought of taking it over to the paper cutter but there isn't enough room between the edge of the flower and stem and the edge of the Whisper White cardstock. So this is what I have for today.  Blah!!!

Thank you for putting up with me today!!! LOL
