They Say It's Your Birthday

Hello bloggers!  This is one of my favourite cards from the January release.  I was really pleased with it!  I started by cutting the Decorative Flags in white, powder pink and Old Rose card and glued them to another piece of white card so they were at differing lengths.  The Old Rose and Powder Pink die cuts were lengthened a bit by moving the die along and not cutting the entire length so they could be staggered on the card.  I made three of the Pom Pom Flowers in white and added glue to the tips then sprinkled Iced Snow on them.  I seated the flowers at the top and cut several of the Magnolia Corners in white to use as accents.  I nipped the corners up into pieces and used them as accents around the flowers.  I cut the sentiment from the Three Cheers set several times in white and stacked them.  I glued it below the flowers across the decorative flags.  The card was completed with white, powder pink and old rose mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are  8"  x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x
