Bloom where you're planted Birthday Card

Click following for OSAAT DT Challenge 196 Use a Digi.

Created this Birthday Card using BugAboo digi, Sun Bonnet Flowers. Colored the digi with Crayola pencil colors & some on computer. Used shades of blue with some accent colors. Embossed background. Stamped sentiments from:  My Craft Spot & Scrappy Moms. I liked the way the appropriate flower, small sentiment "Bloom where you're planted" fit inside the "A very Happy Birthday to you!" sentiment. Used Stampin' Up punches to punch out sentiments. Added gems for bling to some of the flower centers. Added twine to the digi apron.

Photographed in my backyard where my hubby planted these Daisies we bought recently at Home Depot.
