Never Too Many Birthday Cards!

     I always like to keep a large assortment of Birthday cards on hand.  I was watching a video about using scrap for backgrounds.  You take pieces that are at least 2 inches wide and cut them diagonally to form long triangles.  I like how this worked out, and i will be making more.

     My Flower Shop stamps and punch, from SU! was also being neglected so I added them to the mix.  The flowers were stamped in Rich Razzleberry and Wisteria Wonder.  My Happy Birthday die was a gift, so I am clueless.The only other thing was adding centers to my flowers with some Nuvo Crystal drops.

     I would like to enter this at Fab & Funky Challenges #448, which is the Colour Purple.

     This would also be great for the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop #356, which is using all of       our Snippets.

     It is so funny to see some of the paper scraps I have hoarded!  It actually ages me!  LOL.....

     Have a wonderful Hump Day, and I hope to see you again soon!
