Birthday Blossoms

Is it just me (Lauren) or do you think that nearly everybody would secretly like to have a teeny, tiny, non-embarrassing fuss made on or around their birthday? That's one of the reasons why I love to make special cards for my friends and family. It's a GREAT excuse to break out some of the many cool styles of Eyelet Outlet Flower Brads, as well.

On this card I've used Fresh Flower BrightsMini Stitched Flower Brads and... I've invented my very own NEW type of flower brad by adding Pink Enamel Dots to the centers of some suns from the Sun and Cloud Brad set, see?

I've scattered the different sized and shaped brads on top of some awfully pretty stamped flowers from a set called "Bold Blooms" by Pretty Pink Posh. Once I had all of the Flower Brads arranged, I went back and added even more texture and interest by giving some of the stamped flowers tiny Pearl Bling centers or Matte Enamel Dots. Finally I added a diecut sentiment with a tiny Mini Butterfly Brad to dot the "I" in "birthday".

I hope you are having a happy and colorful day, but if not... why not add some beautiful Flower Brads to your life! ♥

loves the fact that Flower Brads are allergy friendly 
you NEVER have to weed them!


  1. This is just fabulous! And how clever of you to turn the sun brad into a flower! I would NEVER have thought of that!! Lauren, I just love this card!

  2. Love it, awesome use of the brads, (I forgot to order the sun brads and book washi tape)
