Fancy That...

Hello Friends!  TGIF!  Before we get started, I just wanted to remind you that Greatest View's latest release, goes on sale tonight at 7pm Brisbane, Australia (EST).  I would hate for you to miss out!! Have a little look at this awesome sneak....

Gail has worked extremely hard putting all this fabulous-ness together.  You really won't be disappointed. :)

.......................................................

Today I am sharing with you a simple birthday card that I have created using a few co-ordinating scraps of patterned paper and the Fancy That Dies sweet blooms.  And the best part is, these paper scraps aren't even from the same manufacturer.  :)  So it's time to break out your stash and create.


I've started with cutting out my flowers and layering the petals until I found a combination I was happy with.  This little die set is so versatile that you can layer the petals as many times as you like and still obtain a gorgeous flower.  Check out my post here.


I wanted to make this birthday card bright and fresh so that the flower embellishments become the immediate focus.



The leaves (included in the sweet blooms die set) have been cut from felt off-cuts and then teamed with some lime green chevron ribbon from Greatest View.  The buttons fit perfectly into the center of the flower and finish the card off nicely.  :)

Now all I have left to do is write a special message inside the card and give it to my dear friend over the week-end.  Quick, easy and super simple.  My kind of card!  LOL!!

Thanks for visiting..x
