Cheery Lynn Happy Birthday

Hi, today I'm sharing my very first post for Cheery Lynn Designs!  I tend to gravitate to using pinks, blues and greens on cards so I thought I'd try to mix things up a bit and use yellows and oranges.


I created the background by cutting the Princess Window from white card stock and gluing a slightly smaller piece of patterned paper to the back.  The window was adhered with foam adhesive to a another patterned paper cut with the largest Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frame, and then backed by a gray 5.5" square card.

The orange Large Roses and yellow Cuties 3 flowers were colored with glimmer mists, shaped with paper shaping tools and glued with score-tape to the Princess Frame.  I tucked leaves and flowers from the Flourish Leaf Strip and Dandelions into the arrangement and added the distress ink colored mushrooms underneath.



I cut the Small Exotic Butterfly 2 with blue patterned paper and darkened the edges with distress ink. Happy Birthday was glued to the top of the Sentiment Tag 2 which was then popped up with foam adhesive.

Thanks for visiting today and be sure to check out this week's Back to Nature Challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree to the Cheery Lynn Designs shop!
