FLLC Birthday Wishes Blog Hop and Challenge!!

Happy Monday everyone~

IT'S A SURPRISE PARTY!!! Grab a handful of confetti, a bright balloon and come along for a fun birthday blog hop to celebrate a special birthday for our dear friend, Christine Okken!  One thing about birthdays, is that you always hope to spend time with those you care about and that's why we're here!  At Flourishes, we're just one big family... so we just wanted to celebrate a wonderful day with one of our loved ones.

Even though we're a day early, we'd like to say...


Join along with members of the Flourishes family today and share some fabulous birthday inspirations, many happy celebratory birthday wishes and maybe even a slice of cyber cake.

My card was created with Pinwheels & Popsicles set. Christine is always a flower type of girl to me and I thought those papers and colors were just perfect for her.
Happy Birthday, Christine!! Hope you will have a fantabulous day tomorrow!!

Totally delicious card. Such a fantastic colour palette.

Heather said...

How pretty!! I really like the paper combination you put together. I've never stamped an image on the scalloped circle dies, I just never think of it, always using them as interest behind the regular circles. Yours looks really cool, though, I just might have to try it.
