Happy Birthday

I've been playing with my new Paper Lace cartridge.  So many fun and interesting cuts and sentiments as well. I never seem to have enough birthday cards so I used my new cartridge to make this card. 

The papers are from K&Company and DCWV Songbird with some plain cardstock from my stash.  I distressed and inked the edges, then popped the flower and sentiment.  In order to have a contrasting center for the flower, I used hide contour on the Gypsy so the petals wouldn't cut.  The flower and shadow were cut at 2", the sentiment at 2.5.  A few pearls and jute finished the card.

Be sure to visit Fantabulous Cricut for the new Challenge Me Monday #51.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
