BEFORE you get all that paper is retired on me, please note that not only did I manage to keep this off the blog until it was delivered but I managed to misplace it in the month that its been done ... OOPS!!!
Here is the birthday card that was made WAY AHEAD OF TIME, so I could use the Tropical Oasis paper for the flower:
The Razzleberry paper is textured which I really like. I made the flower with the scalloped circle punch, and then creased it at every 'point', which was really easy, after cutting on slit in it, adhering two of them together... got it? ha ha.. I added the pearls to give just alittle flare.
The greens for the flower are from the 2 step bird punch.
