Celebrate

Hello everyone! I've created this card for 2 challenge blogs.

A Spoon Full of Sugar is celebrating their one-year birthday and their theme for their Challenge #52 is: Celebration. "We would like you to create a card for a Celebration..... any celebration will do... Birthday, Anniversary, Baby Announcement.... anything goes!"

For this card I am using the wonderful sketch provided for Just Magnolia Week 5 Challenge. I like this sketch very much. I will use it again in the future.

Okay, another differrent type of flowers (my sister is going to love this-- LOL). You can probably figure out how to make them. 3 different size daisies. For each size simply punch one white and one of another colour, but....(there's always a but...hee hee) you have to fold each petal or else the flowers will look flat. And actually they don't look bad even when flat, they just look better when they're more 3-dimentional. It will make it easier to fold the petals if you score the petals first.

I've only put the sentiment "Celebrate" on the front of the card. And to celebrate a birthday, I've added a birthday sentiment to the inside of the card, but really, you can use this card for any occasion by just substituting it with a more appropriate sentiment.


Have a wonderful day!
