Floral Birthday

This is the final one of my cards that was recently published in Papercraft Essentials.

For this one I stamped and white heat embossed two of the stamps that are free with the current issue of Creative Stamping onto a lovely blue background.  I then used a Spellbinders die to cut the scalloped edge and mounted it onto a white card base.


The sentiment is also from the free stamp set and the ribbon is from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge 287 - CAS
Crafty Catz Challenge 286 - Anything Goes
Polkadoodles Challenge 27 - Add Some Embossing
Sister Act Card Challenge 113 - Always Anything Goes
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge #87 - Anything Goes with a Twist: Make It Floral

I am giving away an unopened set of the stamps that I used, you can find the post HERE if you would like to enter the random draw.

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
