JA142 Birthday Wishes

I love finding new ways to use things and today's post is no different! ;) I used the Dahlia Fold technique found on but instead of using a circle punch, I used the ornament punch to give a little pointness to my petals. I cut some small flowers from the Island Floral Bigz Die using my Big Shot. I cut two petals off of each one and adhered them on either side of the sentiment.
