Birthday Card Using NEW Release Whimsy Art by Miran Fairy Fiona

Hello friends.  How is everyone doing?  Are you having a good summer?  Are the kids back to school?  I have been very busy crafting and trying to stay cool in Southern CA.  I will be glad when it is fall; so we can cool down.  

It is time for another fabulous Whimsy Stamp release.  I am using the new release Whimsy Art by Miran Fairy Fiona rubber stamp.  I decided to create a shaped card; since I haven't done one in a very long time.

Circle - Sizzix
Image die - Spellbinders Decagons
Flowers - La La Land Crafts Lily of the Valley Flourish

Paper - CTMH NEW Adventure Paper Fundamentals
