Its ages since I made DL size cards and having made my New Home card a couple of days ago I find myself making another one, this one because the stamp is so long it won't fit on a 6" square which is what I normally use.  This pretty flower  ( I think it's an Aquelegia or Columbine) is from a Papermania set called Nature's Gallery as is the little script stamp at the bottom.The Happy Birthday is a Stampin up stamp.  I masked the oblong and coloured with ink dusters and momento inks, I had intended making a one layer card but I seem incapable of doing "straight" and my masked oblong was wonky so had to do a bit of judicious trimming and layering. I'd like to enter it into these challenges
