More Than Favors Challenge

Wacky Wednesday @ More than favors #13 - Birthday Theme... AGAIN!

Here is my entry for the Birthday Challenges!  

I made a circle shape card with the "Happy Birthday" song lyrics going around the body of the card.  My card is 5".  I grabbed the pre-made circle cards (includes envelopes) from Craft Warehouse for $1 for 8.

I used generic card stock for the pinks, and the largest flower and the center of the flower are cut from pink holographic paper from Target. Then I added a button to the center and Stickles to the center and to the petals of the flower.

I built the flower using pop dots to give it TONS of dimension. I also inked the edges with purple ink.

Right click and save the image to use it to make your own card.
Here is the jpg file if anyone would like to make this card.  I used Plantin School book to cut the 5" circle.  I also used the "center point" feature on my Expression.  I put the little zero in the center of the circle to make it easy to line up the blade in the center of the circle.

The cuts I used on this card include:
All cuts from the Sweet Treat Cartridge
large flower is two layers:  flower 3 - cut at 3 3/4"
smaller flower is two layers:  flower 2 - cut at 3 1/2"

Thanks so much for visiting me here at  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl
