Birthday Bouquet


I recently made this for a friend who celebrated her 79th birthday. I used daffodil and pear pizzazz cardstock/dsp along with a heat-embossed gold sentiment from SU!'s beautiful bouquet stamp set. I used stitched postage stamp dies for the frames, along with framelit dies from a SU! bouquet bunch set to create the bouquet, stems, and bow. The big gemstone was from my stash and I added a few clear gemstones for a little sparkle. For the finishing touch, I added a dab of liquid pearls to the centers of the flowers in the bouquet.

I'm sharing this with the Dies R Us challenge #93 - "frame it."

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great weekend!

You framed your bouquet beautifully. That is a fav color combo of mine. The postage dies give it an extra zip... (get it?)

Lovely touch of springtime colors. Love the blossoms on this pretty bouquet and the little jewel holding the bow. Love these stitched postage dies (new to me!) and the green stripe looks so good with the cream and yellow of the other mats. I'm sure it brought smile to this birthday girl. TFS & Hugs
