Birthday Blooms

Happy Friday! In case you missed the post, the new Power and Spark challenge is posted. This months challenge is called Cut it Out! Simply cut around those beautiful blooms and give them a little lift. Find out the details on the Power Poppy Blog and for your chance to win a free stamp set! Can't wait to see what you cut out!  Hope you can play along. 

Cutting around an image is always fun, at least for me. I like the intricate cutting and the extra umph it gives the cards. This is a very basic card today using Winter Pick me Up. After my blooms were colored I cut around the image and added dimensionals up to the back. Used some gingham soft green paper for the background and wrapped a paper lace trim over some purple paper to bring out the blooms colors. A few sequins and voila!

Oh, Stacy! This is GORGEOUS, and your fussy cutting on this one is extra intricate! But oh it is worth it! It really does pop this defalcate array of flowers and make your card extra gorgeous! Love the gingham background with the beautiful border across and the fancy square die! Truly a stunning card, sweet friend! Hugs!
