Birthday Blue Florals


I recently gifted myself with some Poppystamps dies called Tulisa collage, and Tulisa corner collage, and both have been used on this card. I die cut the white panel, placing black cardstock behind the corner, and the blue patterned liner of an envelope behind the center cut. I've begun saving these blue envelope liners and using them on cards because the color and pattern is so pretty. The black florals were cut with a MB Prim Poppy die, while the Pacific Point blue florals were cut with a Simon Says Stamp Fresh Daisies die. I stamped a SNSS birthday sentiment and added some tiny clear and sapphire gemstones and called this one done.

I'm sharing it with the following challenges:


Dies R Us Challenge #67 - "think spring" - must use die cuts

Flowers remind me that spring is just around the corner, and we're looking at above average temperatures for the weekend, so I'm thinking spring again :)

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great weekend!

Gorgeous! I love that bit of black with all the blue - or is it a bit of blue with the black! Either way it's so pretty and love the dies.
Have a great weekend.

Oh, my favorite color! Great idea with the envie liners. The new dies are super dreamy, and the splatter of gems finish things off nicely.

What lovely flower silhouettes. I agree about the envelope liner. I think there are a couple stamps of that pattern available, I have thought of getting those! Great recycling!
