Birthday Banner Bouquet ~ NBUS #103

Good day!

I'm in the pink today! My Playhouse sees Dee Bris dressed in pink more often in February than in all the rest of the year. Everything is uber perky on every available surface!

Today's presentation card, although expertly sketched out by my hamster, evolved itself into an altogether different card than originally planned. For a couple of weeks I've had a NBUS heart stems die from Impression Obsession on my desk. Because of the hearts, I was planning to use it for a Valentine. But then Day 5 of the ongoing seven days of celebration challenges over at Papertrey Ink {capture the moment} was posted. 
Anniversary-blog-header
The challenge was to make a birthday card.

So I did:

I was able to use the IO die and a NBUS PTI banner die, too. I cut apart the PTI banner into individual flags to make it work with my design. The banner die cuts with the letters as negative spaces, so I filled them with the same pink card stock I used for my card base. For the bouquet, I cut the heart stems in the rose paper and then wiselike, I filled the negative spaces using the positive stems cut from pink paper. Then I skipped to my loo. Next, I cut a slit on each side of the stems and threaded the PTI ribbon through, securing it with tape on the back, punctuating it with an enameled pink heart brad, and pop-dotting it onto the card base.

We get extra credit if we take and link a second time with a mugshot of ourselves holding our cards. So I did that, too, with the help of Mister.

~~~

I purposely made my card using Mono Chrome pinks, so I could enter it in the third challenge at The Card Concept. My card this time is Clean and Layered. The Design Team and the gallery cards are so amazing! I recommend you go over to play and then book their post as a place to visit any time you feel the least bit depressed. There is a whole lot of perky pink on display to put you in the pink of mental health in no time!
 
As so often happens in Blogland, similar challenges are afoot. And so it is that the current challenge at the Craftyhands Challenge is to use different shades of the same color! I'll pink to that!

Did you spot the brilliant pink head of a tulip in that silly photo of moi? Here is the whole array in their own lime light, a gift from the Mister! We normally ignore the Hallmark holidays and instead celebrate, say, March 4th, or August 10th, but these tulips were too pretty to pass up. The weather has been so weird, my bulbs may not come up this year.
As long as we're at it, here are the orchids I received as a gift from the office at my retirement party, which I forgot to post before. I always kill orchids, so wish me luck and share advice if you have any.

And I just noticed yesterday that the spath plant has its first bloom of the year. This plant was a gift seven years ago as a wee 4-inch plant. I'm delighted that I've managed to keep it alive.

Okay, tata! Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy. LITS!* 

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower! Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor!

jimlynn said...

So pretty in pink! Pink is always a good color - and yes, very perky!
The plants....um...I'd probably kill those in a heartbeat but they're so pretty.

SchnauzerCrafts Creations/Christy Q said...

What a beautiful card, Darnell! Love the monochromatic look and the use of the die. I think you nailed all three challenges in a superb fashion!

Bobby said...

Your card is pretty in pink and you are in the pink - looking good.

Funny story about skip to my loo. I was singing that to my youngest granddaughter when she was about 5 and she said "Gramby, you know you're skipping to the bathroom, right?"

Marybeth said...

Great mug shot! You are beautiful in every picture I have seen of you.
Your card is stunning! Loving all the pink....maybe because of my 3 girls . The banner and your IO does are adorable. I have some I need to use as well. TFS the beautiful pictures of your plants. My DH and I love each other every day but Valentines day......jk

artful-notions said...

So pretty in pink, Darnell! Love your sweet smile too! Your plants are gorgeous. Love it when they're in bloom!

Sheila H said...

Nice picture of you! The banner and the hearts are well balanced. I love all the pink.

Colleen said...

Darnell, great picture of YOU, love your "pink" accessory wrapped around your neck!! wonderful cards...and you do too know how to keep a running post and manage to get them all posted and two of them to the same link!

Lisa said...

Darnell this is just as PRETTY as can be!! I love your design and the sweet little polka dot band on the heart bouquet. But you my friend steal the spotlight today!! What a pretty picture of you!!! ;)

Sharron said...

Stunning photos--of you and your pretty card! Love the die cut and all the pink. We currently have two orchids. Someone gave me the first one and I was sure I would kill it. Luckily they have been super easy. I got some strange instructions at first--like the ice cube a day--but have since found out they can be quite low maintenance.

Jacquie Southas said...

Love the banner die cut apart like that & the genius way you wrapped the ribbon around the other die cut - perfect monochromatic card! I can't help you with the orchid - I love them & keep one alive for a couple of years before it died on me for absolutely no reason. I do best with succulents :)

Barb Ghig said...

Gorgeous card, Darnell! I love how all those pretty hearts look like they're coming up from the bottom of the card, and your banner is really fab! Love the photo of you, as well! I sure hope it gets you the win!!!

Thanks for sharing all these beautiful photos with us! Absolutely 'nothing' is in bloom around here!

Thanks so much for another great post! It's always fun to stop by :-)

Jennifer said...

Thanks SO much for stopping by my blog a few weeks back! I will be following your blog...so delightful!

Linda said...

Fun card Darnell and great picture.

Linda said...

I also wanted to thank you for your lovely comments on my blog. They really make me feel good.

crashyourstash said...

Hi, Darnell, thanks for stopping by my blog! I see you are doing the same thing as I with your NBUS. I will add you to my blogroll.

Tracey McNeely said...

Darnell this is fantastic, love your monochromatic PTI birthday card and all your pretty flowers and the gorgeous photo!

Anita in France said...

Total pink sweetness, Darnell ... your heart bouquet card, those tulips and of course your smiling face! Lovely plant photo's ... and a home with not a speck of dust anywhere ... such bliss! Hugs, Anita :)

Karen B said...

Super gorgeous card Dippy. Love how you've filled in the negative spaces.....so effective. Mister sure takes a good photo! Beautiful tulips and equally gorgeous orchids - only advice is to keep them fairly cool and not in direct sunlight, and water infrequently. Your last plant with it's first bloom is called Peace Lily over here.

Hugs.

Sue said...

Beautiful card Darnell. I love how you have used those pretty heart stems and the fabulous banner.
Gorgeous photos too!
I hope you have a good week.
hugs Sue xx

Jasleen said...

Beautiful card as well as the smiling lady holding it ;)And ofcourse the tulips too :) I liked how you have arranged the cut out PTI banner ..looks so good!

Harriet Skelly said...

Not sure which/who is prettier - you or the card! Okay, you are!!! Hugs, Harriet

Sammy said...

Fab card Darnell! Love the die cut, and I especially adore how you "tied" them together with a piece of ribbon! Love it! x

Sue - said...

Thank you Darnell for your lovely comment. Am loving the pink card and photo of you holding it! My son gave me two orchids last Mothers Day. After they finished flowering I cut the stems back to about 3 inches just above a node, and moved them to the windowsill on the landing upstairs. Then I neglected them a bit as I kept forgetting to water them but they obviously were happy as they grew new flower stems with masses of flowers. One has still got them all the other has finished flowering but is putting out new flower shoots before I could cut it back. They still get a bit neglected as I forget to water them but it seems to make them happy!

Hannelie said...

Your card is beautiful in pink Darnell!
Even prettier in the hands of the creator!
Have a great week!

Carol L said...

This card really is pretty in pink, and so are you with hot pink surrounding your great smile :) I wish I had your green thumb!

Pat said...

I love these NBUS dies Darnell, and such a great idea to fill in the cut outs with another colour - it works beautifully. A really brilliant card. Love the photo of you holding the card, and also your pretty flowers. I think I over watered my last orchid which expired in a very short time so I don't think I will be giving you any advice there. x

Brenda said...

Beautiful card and of course you are too!!! I love your pink tulips and your orchid is beautiful as well. Do you know to water your orchid all you have to do is put a couple ice cubes in the pot and just let them melt? Your leaves will fall off and you will have just a stem, but don't worry more leaves will come back! Easy peasy! I love your other plant too-I don't have good luck with that plant. So any advice on that one?

Redanne said...

Your card is a real beauty Darnell and so are you - you photograph so well! The tulips from Mister are gorgeous and so is your orchid - I am with you, I always kill mine off (sadly) but I might try Brenda's advice (above). Hugs, Annie xxx

Julia Aston said...

Love your card - and your beautiful mugshot!!

the primitive country bug said...

Fabulous cards! I really enjoyed seeing the pictures of your lovely flowers in bloom too! I'm so ready for spring, as we just got another 3 inches of snow last night here in Maine. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me some love. Your comment made me smile!! You're a sweetie! Hugs~ Birgit
ps. That's a wonderful picture of sweet little you!!

Ros Crawford said...

Beautiful card and a superb photo!

Benzi said...

Super card and great photo of you and your plants. Tulips are my favorite flower.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I've noticed the trend of going back and filling in the negative spaces that die cuts leave behind. To which I say, y'all have too much time on your hands. I do like your card though and enjoyed seeing the picture of you holding it as well. Great looking plants and flowers too.

baileyrosy.com said...

I don't know which is prettier you or the card both are beautifully perky and I see you color co-ordinated with that gorgeous scarf, now that shows real talent ! Great use of the negatives and the positives nothing went to waste on this card.
BTW i too had been a serial orchid killer for many years but I actually kept two going for over two years until someone knocked them over. They love to be in the sun and not moved about at all.

Valerie Nolan said...

What a perky pinkilicious card Darnell and who is that young woman holding it?
Beautiful tulips and peace lily:)

Judith Taylor - Wright said...

Hi hun great use of shades of one colour love it - ty for joining us at Craftyhands and very good luck x

Karen Petitt said...

I just love this card Darnell, fab and favourite colours, the heart flowers die is gorgeous as are those flag thingies, sorry not sure what they are called. Gorgeous picture of you too huni.

Orchids, oh my, I have a post to publish tomorrow where I have used my orchid stamp. The one thing I recommend strongly is do not water them too often. Your huge plant with all those flowers on is stunning and am a little jealous but I have no idea how to look after them to get them that good xx

Kim Heggins said...

Fabulous card Darnell...so pretty in pink! I love those long stemmed hearts and how you have bunched up, so sweet. Love your photo too...so pretty! And all the amazing flowers...tulips are my favorite flowers, just so beautiful.

Sharon Underwood said...

Such a beautiful card, Darnell! I love the different shades of pink, and the way you created the stems is remarkable! Thanks for the detailed description--you put a lot of work into that card, & I'm glad to know how you did it! I love your picture, too. You always look happy, and that makes me feel good, too. Love your flowers! Hang onto the orchids even when they look dead. They can last forever and one day surprise you with another bloom when you least expect it.

Hettie said...

Oooo! Lovely card there and look at you with lippy on!! Cannot remember the last time I had lippy on, but why both for Mr Fection and his buddies?
Love that orchid. I will send you a link. I looooove orchids and there is a knack to to looking after them.
Hugs
xx

Lindsey said...

Love this modern bouquet (your real flowers are beautiful, too...how fun to see blooming plants). Super fun to see a picture of you and your happy smile, too. (P.S. Thanks so much for the congratulatory wishes...I can hardly believe I won.)

Mrs.B said...

Hi Darnell, lovely card, and a great use of the die.
I love orchids - and they do last - and my tip is always give them filter water and early in the day -once a week. hope this helps.
Avril xx

Verna Angerhofer said...

That is a beautiful card you made. I love the pink tones. And, love your sweet photo showing the card too. Hope your week is a wonderful one!

Carole said...

What a great card...the banner so fun and the lovely bouquet of hearts is just bursting like an explosion..
Such a brilliant photo, bright and sparkling eyes wonderful smile...your delightful sweet self, enchanting.

Pia S said...

I won't give you any advice for your flowers and plants, I just kill them, we've got 3 plants all looking good and alive and that's all thanks to hubby:) But they look the best whenever we've been away on holiday letting neighbors taking care of them. And that is perhaps a good excuse to go on more holidays...
Nice seeing your photo and your sweet CAS love card!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Great use of the challenges to make this fun card! Great photo of you and your card too~ :)

Congrats on your win over at PTI yay!!!! So nice to see your pretty face over at the winner post! Happy happy Happy for you!

maria f. said...

Yay you - you won the lottery! So happy for ya. And that tulip is tu pretty.

Shannon J said...

There are all sorts of pretty in your post today, first and foremost that photo of pretty YOU!! And of course your card - pretty, pretty, pretty! I love, LOVE how you gathered the stems at the bottom with a ribbon and "tied" it with a sweet heart!! And those pretty flowers - especially the tulips, because it was such a sweet gesture by the Mister! But I've got to say, none of these would last in my house - I seem to have some special talent of killing any plant that enters my house!!!

Gerrina said...

Looks like the retirement is becomming you! You look great on the photo! Love the plants! Sorry to say I seem to be a not so pink girl (blue is my fav color...)+ I like the lay-out, but ...sorry... not the colors.... Hope you´re enjoying your week! Hugs, Gerrina

Mau xx said...

Happy Hearts it is too! A cheery colour for these drab days for sure.
Great healthy plants, My daughter has a Orchid and it has survived over three years!!!! She can't believe it as she cannot keep a plant for more than two weeks normally...lol She has it stood in the corner of her window right up against the wall. it blooms beautifully every year.
Hugs Mau xx

Joyce said...

Super card and really nice photo of you. How sweet that you guys celebrate random days. That sounds like a good idea.

That orchid would love sitting in your window in the playhouse! And put an ice cube in it every other day!
Just don't overwater...that's why the ice cube works!

PiecesByEmily said...

Such a beautiful card, Darnell! Killing orchids? you and me both. In fact, i can't plant anything... they all turn brown lol. Have a great evening!

Wendy AppleApricot said...

Hello there dear Darnell, what a most beautiful photo of you! Now don't say it's not, for I will not hear of it.
Your card is beautiful and ... er ... pink, very pink indeed, lol. I love it! There's always lots of pink on my desk, so you will not hear me complain here.
As for Dorset area, thank you dear for telling me about the floods. I didn't know until you mentioned it at my blog. My photos were taken some years ago. I don't know what the present situation is there but I do know (after some internet searching) that there's flooding and heavy weather in the surrounding area. Old Sarum is high ground though, so I don't think they have floods. But the weather is nasty and will be this coming week. It is all horrible for the people and animals who live there, my heart goes out to them. Thank you dear for telling me.
Big hugs to you, Wendy

sandie said...

wow you get so many comments..you super star!! Gorgeous pink card and love your photo. Wow to all your plants, I am impressed! x

Neomed said...

Thanks for the information... I really love your blog posts... specially those on NEOMED

Brenda in IN said...

This is a cute card and so is the picture. I think of you as always smiling and the picture confirms it. Love that snappy scarf too. It is so difficult to type with my fingers crossed but I am doing that today. I typed this out twice yesterday and when I published it disappeared. Still don't know where it went! Today will be better. Thank you for the sweetest comment on my blog. Love all you gals and you are so uplifting.

Barbara in SC said...

Loved your card, loved your photo but most of all, I ALWAYS love your sense of humor! As for the orchid, it is a phalaenopsis, also called the moth orchid, and it likes indirect sunlight and cooler temps, so don't put it in a sunny window or next to a heat source like a register. Water it no more than once a week and make sure the water drains out the bottom completely. Never let it sit in water. Misting the leaves once in a while will make it very happy. And please, no matter what anyone says or what the tag says, DO NOT USE ICE CUBES!!!! The cold is just too shocking to the plant. In fact, when you water the plant, it is best to use room temp water. Your flowers should last for weeks, if not months, and if you cut the stem just above the 4th node after it's finished blooming you will probably get another flower stalk within a year. I've had hundreds of orchids over the last 30 years and these are the rules I follow for phals. They really are very easy to keep and their blooms give such joy for so long. Good luck!

Barb Ghig said...

CONGRATS on your win at Papertrey Ink, Darnell!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so, so happy for you...enjoy your prize!!!

JD/ Jill said...

Beautiful PINK card, Darnell. Great pic of a beautiful lady! Your orchids remind me of my Mother...they were her favorite flower...and she had such a gift with growing them...Hope you have a great week.

Susanne Vargas said...

That card is a real masterpiece - I love it! That die is adorable and I love how you wrapped the ribbon around and added that cute heart brad and the banners! And all this awesomeness in just two shades of pink!
That is a great picture of you!

MaryH said...

Well, Indeed, this is a pink card! So very beautifully pink too! Love that IO die (just got it recently - NBUS) and it's wonderful with your happy banner too. This one just made me smile all over. Matches your pretty bright tulips too. Mr did good as a photographer. Captured your beautiful self just fine. I am liking that new picture very much. Love your haircut too! On the orchid, can't help you there. I have the same problem, and have requested mercy for any future thought of that kind of plant. Your spath is cheery too, and I've had better luck with that one, but alas, eventually - they all bite the dust. I'm celebrating because I've over-wintered a red geranium for about 4 yrs now. It's still got some green on it, even though neglected in the garage at the moment. TFS & many Hugs. One to Mr too, for taking such a pretty photo. Does he give lessons? LOL

Jean said...

What a wonderful photo of you! I think we should all do that more often! And a lovely card, too! Happy Valentine's Day!

shirley-bee said...

Skipping to the loo is an age thing. Time was, we could just stroll to the loo...

As for orchids, go with Barbara in SC's advice. They are tropical plants, and the only place for ice cubes in the tropics is in a G&T! Or wodkawater in your case. The orchid in my bathroom has just finished flowering (since August), and that was its second time (cut back, ignore, water sparingly, regrow). They like mist (hence bathroom or occasional spray with an atomiser).

Love the card BTW, and thank you for my lovely valentine! TBH I thought it was from Mister until I opened it ;)

Nicole N. (Nicole's Craft Nook) said...

Your card reminds me of tulips like in your other pic... Which are my fave flowers!! :))
I like how you have used the banners separately -- they look really nice!!
All the shades of pink are delightful -- & my fave part of your post today is your new pic!!
You look radiant !! Xo

scrappymo! said...

This is such a pretty card...but Dammn girl...you steal the show. You look so pretty and vivacious! Your smile is fabulous!
So glad I clicked on this thread.

Dianne said...

Hello my sweet friend, you look gorgeous in your photo holding your gorgeous pink card, your tulips are soooo pretty in pink and that orchid to die for, and your 7 year plat with its first bloom is fabulous, congrats for having this long, no plants for me, they just die, I don't allow them in my place. don't want to be know as a Plant Killer :O), thanks for sharing..

Jeanne J said...

Awwww! SO happy to see your smiling face here. I love your "happy" card too. The colors are so bright I can't help but smile too!

Geri said...

Hey there pal! LOVE the new photo! If the heartiness of the other plants is an indication of your 'green thumb', then that beautiful orchid will have a long & happy life!

Fabulous shades of pink and beautifully clean & layered - the perfect entry for CCC! Love how you threaded the ribbon through to the back!


crashyourstash said...

You know, if you altered those heart stems a little, I think they could look like tulips, too. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Darnell. I added you to my blogroll.

Colleen Dietrich said...

You've got a great green thumb, Darnell! My spath doesn't look nearly so healthy. I suppose I need to give it a bigger home (pot). :)

Narelle Farrugia said...

Gorgeous! You've created the perfect pink card for our challenge! Thanks for joining us at The Card Concept!
