Celebrate the Occasion #8

Happy Tuesday Everyone!  It is time for Design Team 2 to wow you again this week at Celebrate the Occasion.  The challenge for week #8 is Anything Birthday (must include a flower).  I have a very special LO for you for this challenge!  It is my "Over the Hill" LO. 
Now, I do not consider myself anywhere near being over the hill!  I just turned 30, but I have a friend who is loving this LO so it may be going to her for her hubby!  I have had this LO building in my head ever since I saw my fellow DT member's Feathered Friend Card over at Crafty Jar  and I thought this challenge would be the perfect time to bring the LO to life! 
Here is a close up of the vulture....  
and of my requirerd flowers.  I thought it would be fitting to have my page "pushing up daisies"!

Products Used:
  • Bazzill Paper for Background Gray
  • Stampin' Up! all solid CS
  • Cosmo Cricket Striped Paper
  • Life is a Party Cricut Cartridge (Vultures and Title)
  • Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge (Graveyard)
  • Planitin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge (Flower Border)
  • Fearther Boa is from Target Christmas Section
Thanks for stopping by.  Make sure you check out the rest of the inspiration from the Design Team and link up you Anything Birthday (with a flower) at Celebrate the Occasion by Sunday April 10th (11:59 EST) for your chance to be entered into the drawing for the monthly prize!
