Dies R Us Challenge Time

Hello All...
YEP!  It's time once again for a new challenge
at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.

And, the theme is:

 Well, it just so happens today is my birthday ...
good grief, these birthdays sure come around faster than they used to!  LOL

I have a fun card that was created 'thinking outside the box' (so to speak) ...

I've created this card using an 'ADD ON' to be used with the Lawn Fawn 'Box Card' but since the box card die set is out of stock at the present time, I figured I'd see if I couldn't just make a scene using these cute add-on pieces.

This die set is called 'Shadow Box Card Park Add-On' by Lawn Fawn.

Lawn Fawn - Shadow Box Card Park Add-On Dies

Even though I've used this set in an unconventional way,
I still think it made for a fun birthday card.

Added a few Prima flowers with Nuvo centers and my card is ready to mail.
