The Cutting Cafe

Here's my card, I rotated the sketch:


I used The Cutting Cafe's Beautiful Blooms  for the vase and the sentiment is from Polaroid and Camera Fun.

I found the Jenni Bowlin blooms in my stash....perfect for that Cutting Cafe Vase, dontcha think?!  I topped everything off with some Tuxedo Black Timeless Twine.

Make sure you pop over to the Seize the Birthday blog to see how the Design Team was inspired by the sketch and to find out who the other newbies are!!
