Happy Birthday - JAI66

Well I was lucky this week because over at Just Add Ink they have a challenge for Just Add Flowers. I recently stumbled upon Heidi's blog where she showed us how to make Hydrangea's. Although this is a very fiddly card the end result is marvelous and well worth the effort. So I have made a few of these and it fits in well with this week's challenge. I didn't actually have the punch that Heidi used, so I used my Trio Flower Punch instead.

I have used Marina Mist and Bashful blue cardstock and the leaves are Certain Celery. I stamped the reeds from Inspired by Nature Stamp set and stamped them with versamark for the background. Leaves where free hand I daubed some of my flowers for an added look and the Scallop Corner Punch was also used. The saying is from the On Your Birthday set.
Pop on over to the Just Add Ink website for more flower inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by.
