In addition to celebrating the new Create with Connie and Mary Edition starting up, there is another celebration today!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY…to ME!!!  Yes…today is my birthday and I made myself a birthday card!  Well, not really, this was one of the cards we did for my Technique Class last night!  It does have my favorite color…yellow…and I love flowers…and this set is just TOO CUTE for a birthday card!  So…it will be my birthday card to myself!  lol!



I started with a base of Daffodil Delight.  On the Whisper White…look closely…do you see it?  I used the Piercing Template on it in the background!  I'm going to LOVE that set of templates, I know it!  I also added a strip of Floral District Designer Paper across the top.  I stamped the flower on scrap Whisper White…I used the Dauber Painting Technique on it with colors of Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red!  It is punched out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch and popped up in the pierced area.  I added a Real Red bird and two Lucky Limeade leaf clusters.  A rhinestone for the bird's eye and he is holding the Itty Bitty Banner with the Happy Birthday greeting in his mouth!


Like I said…cute, huh?

Happy Birthday Connie! I love your card and I don't even like the color yellow! The more that I see made with this stamp set, the more I like it.

Hi Connie!  Happy Birthday today!!!  What a bright and cheery card you have made.  I LOVE it!  I think it is very cool that you punched out the flower with the circle punch.  I wouldn't have thought to do that.  So cool.  Love the colors you have used and all the yellow too.  Hope you had a nice piece of cake, ice cream, or other birthday treat today.
