Paper Blossoms

On a recent visit to Archiver's I fell in love with the new McGill Paper Blossoms punches. The oriental lily was my favorite! I realized that I didn't need all of the punches, as I could do the underneath "holder" and the stamen with my Cricut (using Joys of the Season and Potpourri Basket), so I just got the petal punch and the tool set, which helps give them a wonderful shape!

I played with it as soon as I got home! I decided to try some black and white flowers, as my niece is getting married in May and her colors are black and white. I made three flowers that just sat on my desk.

I decided to see how they would look on a card, so I pulled out my Black and White paper stack from The Paper Studio and the mat stack of solid colors, also from TPS. This is what I came up with. Another easy birthday card. I rounded the edges (something I usually forget about), used my favorite happy birthday stamp, added some Recollections pearls and a sheer ribbon.

Another easy peasy card!
