Joyeux Anniversaire - FFFC #166 'Say It With Flowers'


We're starting a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  The lovely and super-talented Natalie is our hostess for this challenge and the new theme is  'Say It With Flowers.'  This challenge is being sponsored by Magnolia-licious.  Please hop over to the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge to get complete details on the challenge and to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to join us.

What I have to share with you is this birthday card.

The base of this shaped card is just the one layer, but the centre panel itself is actually a mini easel card.

Here's a closer look at the adorable Magnolia Stamps image being featured.

- Tilda Binding Flowers from the Special Moments Collection 2013

Magnolia Stamps are available from our sponsor, Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, contact Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
