Look up...Look way up!
No, you are not looking for Rusty, the Friendly Giant's sidekick, but rather the flower ticker at the top of my blog! I have just added seven more flowers used from my stash.
I layered together seven flowers from my floral stash assortment, a wee matching butterfly, and then mounted that all onto yet another of the 25 cent packages of pre-printed cards from Michael's...My NBUS item.
My blogging buddy Darnell, has a wonderful challenge going on at her blog djkardkreations.
She coined the phrase NBUS (never before used Schtuff ) and is hosting her first NBUS challenge with lovely prizes. It is "Anything Goes with an emphasis on Friendship", and you have till June 27th to play along.
As a birthday card is something I would give to a friend, I hope my card fits the brief!
The sentiment and mat were from that photo album where I store my precut dies. I grab this book when I go to the RV...it desperately needs refilling as the contents are fairly picked over at the moment. I so would have preferred a nice scalloped mat but C'est la vie!
Whoops...it looks as though the center of my large white flower has fallen off...how come i never noticed before I took the picture!!! Think this calls for a wee search of the craft room floor...now if ony I could remember it is were a gem or another of the navy flowers...lol
