I had a great time trying to make my own paper flowers using cuts from my Cricut. I used a six petal flower from the Preserves cartridge. I inked the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Then to make the flowers really pop off the page, I used my piercing tool and curled the petals. Then I layered several flowers together and used a button for a center. The Happy Birthday is cut from the Cricut Lite Celebrate with Flourish cartridge. I really love this cartridge! It has so much to offer! I am on a quest to use up papers from my large and abundant stash! So these papers are a selection from Stampin Up Pattern Papers. They are retired, and I do not remember the name of the package. The very back cardstock is Creative Memories Brick. I find I go to this color over and over when I need a true deep burgandy shade. The other cardstocks are from my Stamping Up cardstock stash. I am not sure about the colors as much of my paper stash is discontinued. The green ribbon is just a generic ribbon from my sewing room and the burgandy ribbon is Stampin up. When I cut out the Happy Birthday, I lost the dot to the letter i.... so I just used a brad! I hope you enjoy this page as much as I enjoyed making it!
