A Blue Happy Birthday

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I want to share a birthday card made with Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms. I have shaped these flowers using the Oakberry Lane 3D Flower Shaping mold and they came out really well except for the largest flower.  The new flower shaping card is just so easy to use in the mold as well.

I hope that I have inspired you to use the molds for lots of different flowers.
