Flagged Flower

Good Sunday morning everyone! It was sure great to sleep in this morning but I didn't really expect to sleep this long! I took a peek at the clock and just expected to sleep about a half hour longer and ended up sleeping two hours longer!! Yikes! Oh well! Now I don't have as much time before I have to get Nick to soccer practice. Looks to be a beautiful day today!

Today's card is one that I did for a recent swap I participated in. My card base is Soft Suede with a piece of Pool Party glued down. Then I took a piece of Whisper White and rounded the bottom corners. I took a piece of the Attic Boutique designer paper and scalloped one end and corner rounded the other. I glued this to the Whisper White piece and then wrapped a piece of Pool Party seam binding ribbon around it before popping it up on the card. On a scrap piece of Whisper White I stamped the flower from Mixed Bunch in Pool Party and punched it out with the Blossom punch. I also stamped the flower center in Soft Suede and punched it out with the 3/4" circle punch. I put a brad through this and popped it up on the flower and the flower is popped up on the card. Then I took two strips of Whisper White and stamped the words on each in Soft Suede. The greeting is from the hostess set, Happiest Birthday Wishes. I flagged one end on each and glued them to the card by tucking them behind the flower. And there you have it! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
