Birthday Bouquet

I made this card for this week's Seize the Birthday challenge, which is a 'sketch for a feminine birthday'.  As all the papers and card are from my snippets drawer, I'm also in Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground.

Papers and card from snippets drawer
Nestabilities Classic Ovals Large and Lacey Ovals dies
Woodware Crafty Edger Ribbon Cassette
Butterfly charm

I attached green spot paper to purple card and attached it to a card blank.  I used the Ribbon Cassette with my Crafty Edger on a piece of purple card and then layered lilac patterned paper across the centre.  I die cut the image and then attached it to an oval of purple card which had been cut with the lacey ovals die.  Following the sketch, I attached purple striped paper to the card, then the scalloped strip.  The image was attached with foam tape.  To finish, I added a small butterfly charm.

  1. Oh so pretty! Love all the purple on this and that beautiful image.
    Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday.

  2. Very pretty! That little image is a sweetie...I can see shy you wanted to UPcycle it! Great card.

  3. Totally adorable card Kath - great for the STB challenge, and perfect for the Playground. We're almost certain we have a hedgehog sleeping behind the shed (truly!) - I wonder if he'll appear with flowers and wearing wellies when Spring finally arrives :)

    I followed that sketch and almost lost the will to live - still summoning the courage to attempt a male card during the coming week.

    Hugs, Di xx

  4. Love this image. I want someone to bring me flowers like that. Really pretty card. Thank you for joining us at Seize the Birthday.

  5. Really cute, and great recycling. Love the colours. Lynn x

  6. What a pretty card. I have good intentions each week of doing Seize the birthday challenge but invariably run out of time!

  7. CUTE! And great card layout for the STB challenge. Of course Di's hedgie will come out from behind the shed bearing flowers! xxx

  8. So adorable - and the colours are so soft and beautiful.
