Happy Birthday!

Hi there!  Here's a card I made using the "priscillastyles" Man with Flowers and Cat image. (See post below which shows the entire image).  One of the things I like about digital images is their versatility.
In this case, I used Photoshop to "erase" the image surrounding the flowers.  I then selected the flowers; resized; and copied and pasted them directly into a text box, that I created in a Word document.  How fun and easy!  My sentiment is also computer-generated.
The card qualifies for the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge BlogAllsorts Challenge Blog Week #70 -- Use at least 3 punches -- I used EK Success circle, corner rounder and flourish punches , well as a small MS scallop circle punch.
cdacsc6 -- sketch challenge 
cdacec6 -- embellishment challenge -- use flowers, brads, buttons or ribbon over your digital image
cdachsoc6 -- holiday/special occasion challenge -- create a project using some bling
I am so glad you were able to stop by and visit.  Thanks so much and have a great week.
