Flower-ful Birthday Wishes

Good morning!

Jessica here with a bright and colorful flower-ful birthday card to share with you today!  One of my favorite stamping techniques to use is paper piecing.  It's such a quick way to add character and color to your crafting projects.  I used some patterned paper from Echo Park for my card today - the patterns worked so well with these fun flower images.

I stamped the flowers from Your Friendship (now available only in digi format)  in black Versafine ink (my favorite ink for paper piecing because the black is so rich and dark against the patterns) and then trimmed them with scissors.  Then I took my Memento Black marker and edged around the trimmed lines of the flower to finish it off - another important step when paper piecing to help hide any tiny mistakes in your cutting.

Have an enjoyable weekend!
