Monday, October 25th

It's official...I'm a rebel. Two months in a row I've said nope to round and square.
Didn't even try this week...just threw caution to the wind and made my card a great big rectangle....yep...that's the shape for me. I know...I know...I should have at least tried but I really wanted this card to be special and working with a round or square card zaps my mojo...I needed my mojo :)After all this card is for one of my dearest, most specialist friends. {Kelly} from the {ippity} design team is celebrating a birthday today and her challenge today on the {ippity} blog is to make a birthday card...we all need them right.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KELLY!!!
I hope you have a super special birthday...you deserve it. Take time to just celebrate YOU today...spoil yourself rotten!!
Love ya girl :)If you happened to stop by the {ippity} blog yesterday than you already saw this little flower. The design team made Kelly a bouquet of flowers...were dropping them in the mail with our cards and together she is going to have one GORGEOUS flower arrangement.
Here is a close up of the layers:I used the {Blossom Nestabilities} to cut the flowers. The tissue paper is actually from Unity. Sometimes the boxes come with it in their to hold your stamps in place. I used to throw it out...what was I thinking??? Save that stuff...it's the perfect kraft color for LOTS of projects ;)
Here is the little duo together:Don't forget to stop by the {Mojo Monday blog} and the {ippity} blog for the hop participants!!!

I think your card turned out lovely making it a regular size instead of a square or a circle...so who cares if you didn't even "try!" Love it!
