Birthdays Galore

I seem to have birthdays galore over the next few weeks so thought I had better get cracking. I have decided to make different shaped cards and so got to searching in the old grey cells (not a pretty site) lol. I popped over to StampwithUs blog and decided to make one card to fit their challenge which is a Receipe Challenge this week; 4 Patterned Papers; 2Card Stock and no other embellishments (eeeek). So, decided to use Stampin' Up! Playful Petals Set; Tea Party Designer Papers, and for a different shape I cut a Zig Zag card in Whisper White. I stamped and Cut out the flowers in designer papers and 2nd choice card stock Certainly Celery. Three Papers were used on the card and the 4th paper was used to stamp on and cut out the flowers. The image above shows the Happy Birthday greeting, I also inked all the edges of the paper to give definition. I also stamped inside the card on the bottom edge with small stamp from the set.
