Happy Birthday Flower Circles

Good afternoon crafty friends and long time no see!

The summer holidays are nearly over and what a holiday it was.  There was laughter, tears, shocks, accidents, boredom, fun, exasperation, more laughter, more tears and some temper tantrums along the way!  It was all worth it.

I had a birthday this month and I got a load of dies of my fella.  I had no idea what to do with them until I got my Quick Cards Mag No. 169 and saw these gorgeous trellis cards.  I decided to CASE one using my own papers, colours, dies etc. and here is the result.

This card was such fun to make.  I will be using the other ideas in this mag to adapt to my creations. The sentiment and flower circle are from Digi Stamp Boutique and are coloured in with ProMarkers. The papers are LOTV Nitwits.  I have heat embossed the edges of my die-cut butterflies.
