Simple Flower Birthday card

Simple Flower

Here's a quick & easy card I did earlier today, keeping it nice & simple. There's a challenge over at the Cutting Cafe to use one or two of the free digi stamps they're giving away this week, I've used both the dots and the flowers on mine and I've combined it with One Stop Craft's challenge, who are looking for the colour combo Apple Green, Chocolate & Clotted Cream. Rather than try & match up a colour to the backing paper & flower outline, I decided to keep it uncoloured and printed out the flower & papers onto SU! Very Vanilla cardstock for the cream colour.

Here's the rest of the details:
Sentiment - SU! Stem Sayings
Cardstock - SU! Very Vanilla; Chocolate Chip
Flowerpot - cut on Cricut

We've had a few flakes of snow again today, which I hope doesn't come to anything, really bored of winter now - roll on Spring!
