Remembering Your Birthday with the Bow Builder Punch for PP237

Remembering Your Birthday, Pictogram Punches, Bow Builder Punch, Painted Blooms

Hello Stampers! You all knocked our socks off with the Floral Challenge last week over at the Paper Players! Wow, if you haven’t seen them, I hope you will go and take a look. This week the wonderfully talented LeAnne has a very versatile sketch challenge for us. I really enjoyed this one so much! I know that the floral challenge is over but I am so ready for Spring that I need to see paper ones at the very least. I made this one out of the Bow Builder Punch with the center from the Bouquet Bigz L die. The background DSP is from my most favorite yet, Painted Blooms. I ran it through the Big Shot in the Spring Flowers TIEF for a little light texture. The Banner Punch and Bitty Banner Framelits are so useful in getting them done easily, quickly and perfect every time. I used the flower and heart stamps from Pictogram Punches for more flower fun! The only detail I forgot was putting pearls in the center of the little flowers. I didn’t notice until I uploaded the photo so I will definitely add them before sending this card out.
