Birthday Bash #4

I love, love, love punch art!  And this card is so creative! When I saw Kelly Acheson's card here, I knew I had to add this one to the line-up in my Birthday Bash stamp camp. All I changed was the sentiment, the embossing folder for the "leaves," and the flower center.

This one of the most feminine card of the group.  You could change the sentiment and put this card to another use.  Creating this flower shape does take a little bit of adjusting to get the "petals" evenly spaced.  We used Tombow adhesive.  (Kelly posted an update about assembling it here.)  In the end everyone's flower turned out well and they were all pleased.

My new Stampin' Up! catalogs arrived a few days ago!!!  If you can't wait until my Open House on June 7th, stop by and I'll be glad to give you one.  Just don't mind my messy house. We've got lots of school activities/baseball games/swim lessons going on - and no time to tidy up.  What little time I've had at home I've spent outside cleaning up the garden.  That is WAY more fun than picking up toys, LOL!

Susan, I love the card and the flower. I'm going to have to sit down and try one of these.

Love that flower! LOL at the messy house! Our summer break started Thursday, but I'm not attacking the house until Monday. I figure I deserve a few 'easy' days before I become full time Mom (a much harder job) for a few months!
