Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #280 - Birthday

Happy Tuesday everyone!  This week's Die Cuttin' Divas challenge is a birthday challenge.  We all need birthday cards and projects all year so this one is always fun.  

My birthday was last week and my husband bought me a Brother Scan and Cut machine.  I have been wanting one of these for so long to use with my stamps.  Last week Amazon put it on sale so I was able to get one.  

I went to a crop this past Saturday and all I did was stamp, color and cut out images.  I had a blast.  A few of the ladies at the crop are planning to get this machine too.  It really comes in handy if you have a lot of stamps.  Here is the card I made this week:
Card base: Papertrey Ink
Patterned paper: Echo Park "Everyday Eclectic"
White paper: Recollections
Banner Die: Creative Time for Me
Sentiment: Cardz TV "Make a Wish"
The jar and the flowers were CTMH stamps that 
I cut out using my new Brother Scan and Cut Machine
Dots: My Mind's Eye
Bic Markers were used to color the jar and flowers

I hope you will join our challenge this week.  Please stop by Die Cuttin' Divas and check out the amazing projects our design team members have made for this challenge. Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by my blog.
