Happy Birthday w/ flower- CTO #8

I hope everyone is ready to "Celebrate the Occasion" with challenge # 8- Anything Birthday (must have a flower). You can do any kind of project, card or LO as long as it follows the challenge criteria. So get ready and hop on over and show us what wonderful creations you can come up with!! Also a big congratulations to Esther for winning last weeks challenge!!

For my card, I made it simple. I finally got up the courage to use one of my pins on my card and a flower, can you believe it. I don't have too many with flowers and I haven't used a pin on a card yet. Thank you Carrie at abusybee for the inspiration, she always comes up with some adorable cards with her pins. I finally gave in and reached deep into my feminine side, lol, I think it turned out :) I hope you enjoy and as always if you have ANY questions please ask and I will try and reply right away. Have a great day, or night if you are anywhere other than the east coast or when you are reading this :)
