Gardenia Birthday Wishes

One more card for today. In this one I used a Cheery Lynn Mexican Tile Pattern die and matted it with purple. I just love this die. It is so very intricate. It also has a center square pattern that you can remove after die cutting, which I did. 

The flower was created with the Memory Box Gorgeous Gardenia Outline and Background dies. I paper pieced the leaves with green card stock and scored them to make them look more realistic. I popped on the flower, stamped the sentiment (GKD Framed Greetings) and was done.

This was a quick and easy card but the end result is a lovely one. Hope you liked it and were inspired to create.

This card was entered into the following challenge(s):
The Outlawz  -  TT080113 - Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday  -  Challenge #91 - Anything Goes
Sister Act  -  Challenge #18 - Anything Goes
2 Sisters Challenge Blog  -  Challenge #155 - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown  -  Challenge #158 - Birthday Party

Hi Olga, followed you via Outlawz & just became a new follower. Hope you'll find time to visit my blog too. Loved this card with the beautiful CL die. MBox dies are my favs, and I haven't gotten the gardenia yet. Love what you did with it on this card. TFS & have you bookmarked so that I can return for future visits. Nice to get to know you.
