Rose Birthday Card

Hello everyone!  I am really excited today because I stepped outside of my comfort zone and made some paper flowers.  These flowers were fun to make, and I was so happy that they turned out looking somewhat like roses! :)  I followed a video tutorial to make these flowers... you can see that video here.  This card is definitely more elegant than I'm used to making too...  There is no amount of Create a Critter on here at all!  Hee hee....  :)  Here's the card....

Cricut Cardz Challenge- create a birthday card for a grandparent
Birthday Sundaes- create a birthday card using green, orange, and white
Scrappy Frogs Challenge- use flowers in your project





A2 sized card
Cricut cartridges used:
George and Basic Shapes- flowers (each size is cut x3) cut at 1.5", 2", 2.5"
Storybook- frame cut at 1.51" for white piece, 1.71" for green piece
Disney Princess Dreams Come True- leaves cut at 1.5", 1.94"
Cuttlebug- argyle
Sentiment- Hero Arts Birthday Messages stamp set
Glue gun

Well there it is....  No stickles, no punny sentiment, no Create a Critter....  Just a pretty fancy card!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!  :)

**I am also going to enter this into the Kissed by a Frog linky party: http://kissedbyafrog.blogspot.com/2011/07/frog-blog-love-linky-party-5.html
