Here is my creation!

I need Birthday Cards so I chose ODBD's "Happy Birthday"!  I think this watering can of flowers is so pretty and you can change the color of the flowers to suit the dp and c/s you decide to use! A very versatile set that can be used for any occasion! After stamping the image and coloring the image using copic markers it was cut out and framed using Spellbinder's Classic Ovals! After gluing strips of BoBunny Designer paper to cardstock, I embossed the background using a Sizzix E/F. I scored one side and paper pierced the center of the scored area. I also scored around the oval frame! Ribbon and bling were added!

This is the inside of my card!

Please stop by to see what the talented ODBDCT have created:

We hope you will play alsong with us! We would love to see your creation!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Don't forget to hug your loved ones!

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!

NO need to apologize, my friend...I myself have been somewhat MIA....seems like I just don't have 'blog' time lately...real life has been busy and stamp cave (in the basement) even became pretty HOT when the temps hit 103 and the heat index was 110 or so...that is way over normal temps for us......slowed me down for!!!

hope all is well with you and that it is just a busy life that is getting in your way and not anything more serious....

anyhooooooooooooooo....your creation has all your usual, fabulous, beautiful touches....fabbo, gf
