Happy Birthday Christine!

All of the October guests have gone and the house seems very quiet as my Hubby is also gone. That leaves me with all the time I wish, to do crafting. Flourishes has been so nice to me. Did you see that I won the October stamp sets, Yes, all three of them. What a wonderful prize to get. Their stamps are so great to work with, as they make your cards look so professional.
That being said, one of this weeks challenge is to make a birthday card as it is Christine Okken's birthday.
Here is my card.


I stamped the very first set I bought from Flourishes, the Chrysanthemums. This set lends itself to so many different ways, but here it looks so good just fussy cut and all alone.

Thanks for stopping by and there is still time for you to enter. Take a look at their Timeless Tuesday challenge also. Good luck!
