Happy Birthday Card

On Basic Grey's blog there is a challenge posted to use up your scraps. Here is a card I made using up some of the scraps I had sitting on my table after putting together a layout.  

I used some white cardstock and inked the edges with black soot Distress Ink. Cut "v"s on the ends of some strips of paper I had left over from another project from the Little Black Dress Collection and inked those edges as well.
I had bought the Cuttlebug quilling flower die a while ago and finally pulled it out to play with and made the flower. The die uses strips of paper to cut and quill. I loved how the flower turned out, I just didn't expect how bulky the flower was going to be. This is going to be a hand delivered card, so I don't have to worry about it fitting into an envelope.
Cut some leaves free hand and inked the edges. Placed a button in the center of the flower with a glue dot.
Stamped the sentiment from a Stampin' Up stamp set.


  1. The flower on this one is too cute.

  2. Gorgeous card. Can you send me one for my b-day??? I love it!
