Our theme this month is Birthdays!  I decided to use the free file for my project today and created a layout with it!
It's a very clean layout - but definitely not simple :).  This is a time consuming process - but I can honestly say I think it was worth every minute! Here's how I created it:

1) Expand the size of the flower so that it is in the 10 inch range.
2) Ungroup everything and cut out the two big flowers
3) Bring the doily shape to the center, highlight it, and click "release compound path"
4) Doing this will allow you to pull out all the negative space parts.
5)I decided to do four different patterns so I deleted the main outline and then dragged each of the negative parts to a different corner (as seen below)

6) If this is too much work for you, you could also trace and cut out each part.
7)Assemble the doily and parts onto the big flower pieces.
