Hey there blogging buddies,
Today is Birthday Challenge #2 at AnnaBelle Stamps. The DT gals Sue K and Stephanie are hosting this challenge so head on over to their blogs for the details, to see their awesome creations and to link up your creations.
Their challenge is to create a project using blooms! (How fitting, especially for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere where spring is in the air – Yay!) I am also entering this into the current CASE Study #56 Challenge where the talented Julie Lacey is the muse. You can view her gorgeous inspiration card here. I love her layout, her ribbon and her flowers!
I do like creating little scenes so lots of ink was used in this one. I love turning a blank piece of white cardboard into something pretty! I have used lots of AnnaBelle stamps on this one. The tree is from the Tree-MEN-dous set. The grass on the bottom of the circle is from the All Things Grow set and the background stamp is from the Backgrounds by Design 3 set. I created the clouds by using a technique that Darlene used in her card here.
The large rolled rose flower is my new MFT die (which I love) and I finally purchased a leaf die! Both of these things make me happy!
