Good Thursday morning.  Welcome to the Impression Obsession Design Team “Happy Birthday” challenge.  There is nothing I love more than combining my love of making flowers and creating projects with frames.  My project today was made using the new Ornate Rectangle Frame, Spiral Flowers Large, Leaf Cluster and the sentiment is from Sweet Treats.

I started by stamping the sentiment on the white layer with versa, embossing with gold embossing powder and then attached to the card base with mounting tape.  The ornate frame cuts into three separate pieces but I like them assembled together so I attached them together on the back side with double stick tape.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base.

I rolled two of the larger flowers from the new spiral set and one of the smallest flower.  I love this new larger size.  I cut and formed the leaf clusters and attached them to the back of the flowers with glossy accents.  I finished by attaching the flowers to the frame with glossy accents.  I love how delicate and feminine this frame and rolled flowers combination is done in the lavender, white and green.
