Bright Birthday Flowers

Challenge over at Cuttlebug Mania this week is to make your own flowers - whether by hand or die...

Great opportunity to take out my stacking flower die and run it through the cuttlebug a few times - first blue tissue paper that came wrapped around a little prize win from the lovely Di at Pixies Crafty Snippets Playground, some pink paper from my snippets stash - then hand cut stems & stripey vase also from my snippets stash. Card base, stickers glittery hearts n bling from my stash...

I am linking up to the following challenges with this creation

Pixies Crafty Snippets Playground for another shot on the swings

I am also linking up to Muse where my inspiration was the colours of the flamingos on the card made by Therese Calvird

Thanks for stopping by... Mxx
