One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Seize the Birthday ~ No toppings!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY
DEAR JODENE,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY
TO YOU!!
Today we are celebrating a birthday of one of our own!
I hope you will stop by Jodene's blog  and give her some birthday wishes.
This is for you Jodene!!
 
I liked the No Sew Quilted card from the Make it Monday (a PTI video) a couple of weeks ago and thought this would make a lovely card with some soft flowers...and make it feminine...at first I was thinking a Mother's Day card, but decided to make this one for the special birthday card today.
I cut each square 1.5 inches, used four pattern pieces and rustic white.
I laid them all out on the diagonal and taped them to another piece of paper with less weight (not computer paper though, that is too thin.)
After all the pieces were adhered, I cut off the excess hanging over the sides.
Then I ran it through the cuttlebug using a PTI hexagon cutting plate, but by using the soft mat I was able to get an impression instead of a cut.
I hope you will go HERE to Seize the Birthday Challenge Blog and play along with us...
This is an "ANYTHING GOES" CHALLENGE!
