Happy Birthday To You

Ok,It is me Dawn today. I have  a quick project I put together this last weekend with my limited reach to my craft supplies. Thank goodness I could reach my Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts and Big Shot.
Let me share a few steps with you to make my Birthday door hangar.
 I had this wooden door hangar I painted with one of  my favorite paint colors...
  I cut my first layer out with the Japanese Garden Lace Oval.I went to inking the outside with a brown and then used the inside with a green.I love these dies because I can use each piece ~ the positive and negative side.
I cut my stamped and colored image with Scalloped Oval.
I then decided to mat my image with the frame but needed a background to hold it all together.

I just used the die and traced around the shape~you know I fussy cut each of those scallops.NOW I know why I love using
Then of course I went to work making some flowers to decorate my frame. Miniature Rose,
 Cuties 2  make a great small collage along with the leaves from my frame.
My last touches were adding some ribbon and trim and of course a Happy Birthday sentiment to the bottom.
I think this will be fun to add to the birthday person's door on their special day.
Thanks for joining me today~ here at Cheery Lynn Designs
