Birthday Bouquet

My friend Andrea turned 40 today. She thinks she looks good for being 40, but I look better being 42....but don't tell her that! HA HA HA *okie hoping Andrea has lost the link to okie's blog!*

So for her birthday I decided to try and make a BIRTHDAY BOUQUET. I wanted to use more black since it was for her 40th birthday but.....somehow I ended up with a lot of white. But I still think it turned out pretty good.......SHE WAS THRILLED WITH IT!!

I used Celebrations for most of it. The words "the big" are done with printing press. I thought I would save the file in case I want to make another one and then I won't have to figure out sizes and such! The mats on the file are labeled but you can always make new mats and copy and paste the objects to different ones when you want to have more than just two colors.
