In my case, that would be the rose, so I chose the beautiful Enchanting Roses stamp and die set again by Papertrey Ink.

Pretty Pink Birthday

Hi Creative Friends,

I am loving all ways you can use the new ‘YOU‘ die from Penny Black. It is a fantastic die to have in your stash!

So, with that in mind, here is another card design using this die, along with sweet, French-style flowers from the Flower Medley stamp set by Penny Black and one of my favorite elements, a sentiment banner. I am always so enamored by banners; they are so easy to draw too! Give them a whirl!

But, if you are feeling a little intimidated by drawing a banner yourself, I have included a copy of the one I drew for this card. You can access it here or at the bottom of this post.
