Birthday Elegance

Hello! I hope your week is shaping up well--only 2 more days til tgif! My card today is for 5 challenges:
 My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #45, BIRTHDAY SHAPED CARDS! Wow, you should totally check out their blog! The DT has some supah cute shaped birthday cards that truly inspire and send your creative mind spinning!
The Paper Shelter Challenge # 52- ADD A SENTIMENT! Ooolala, these ladies make some fancy cards! I love the Paper Shelters stamps but sadly, I yet to own any. However, this blog encourages all peeps to join in the fun anyway, so cool!
Paper Sundaes Challenge #108- BIRTHDAYS! My second entry for this challenge, with Birthday as the theme I had to submit it here too Yippee!
Craft Your Days Away Challenge #39- PAPER PIECING! Be sure to check out this one just for the super fun challenge or if you're interested in applying for the CYDA Design Team--there's an open call!!
Card Makin Mamas Challenge #39- HAPPY BIRTHDAY! This is my first time playing at Card Makin Mama's! These ladies are fun, creative and super inspiring!
I decided to work with my Cricut to create some fancy flourishes and scrolls as well as the base of the card's shape.  I don't have any nesties, big dies or anything like that so my Cricut serves as my only tool to create a look similar to those I see all over that I'm so in love with.  Still working with old flower stickers (here Anna Griffen) and dies to substitue true primas and expensive fabric flowers lol. Hey, that's why were called paper crafters and scrappers right?! ;)

Thank you for visiting me! Have a wonderful evening friends! New Survivor tonight, woot! woot! :)
