Another Year in Bloom
Spring always makes me think of flowers. In fact, gardening is my second passion in life, next to stamping, of course.  I created this card for my monthly Card Class and wanted to use "old school"  products (a stamp set that's been around a while)for a fresh, spring, EASY birthday card.  Tips:
  1. Stamp the largest of your flowers first, when creating a background then fill in with the smaller flowers.  
  2. After I punched the border I used the 1/16" Circle Handheld punch to make small holes to resemble eyelet ribbon.
  3. The words and the single flower next to it are mounted on Dimensionals.
