Simon Says.....sending summer flowers (& a very happy birthday to the Simon Says Stamp blog!)

This is challenge #9 over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog! WOW, time flies!!!! So the challenge is a double one again - to make a birthday card in honour of Simon Says Stamp blog turning ONE YEARS OLD, and Sending Summer Flowers!

Here is my card for this challenge. I used Tilda holding a bee from the Chasing Butterflies collection, but traded the bee for a pretty daisy!



The paper I used is Tempting Turquoise & Purely Pomegranate (SU) and the DP is from CTMH. I had this huge turquoise flower so I just folded it in half and had Tilda sit on it. I added primas and sugar coated brads from Doodlebug, and a Happy Birthday sentiment (sorry it is hard to see, the shadow from the flower is covering it...oops)

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you will join us in this challenge and make a birthday card filled with flowers!!!! Head over the the CHALLENGE BLOG and see what the other Design Team members have for you to see!!!!

Don't forget, if you enter, you can win a $25 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp, courtesy of Heidi!!
Have a great week!!!
