Monday Mood Board 6 and a sketch!


Just a quick post to share my take on the inspiration photo Dawn from Wplus9 provided for this week's Monday Mood Board.  Easter........I don't really send Easter cards........so I went with a birthday theme and carried the colors from the inspiration photo to my florals. 

This card has been a work in progress since Wednesday morning!  I stamped my floral panel (masking technique) but then was stuck!  I finally narrowed everything down after talking with my friend Jen yesterday!  She has a take on this photo as well and I can't wait to see her version!  The sketch over at Seize the Birthday card challenge blog helped me pull this all together....this week it's a feminine birthday card!

**Do you see the tiny trio of flowers?  I thought there was too much white space between the florals that I searched my Wplus9 set and found this itty bitty to fill in the space....Love how it turned out!**

birthday wishes

Jen, the scallops are for you and I used the heart border to make them......but I couldn't fit the chick in!  :)

Amy your card is a breath of spring! I love that little trio stamp! I think someone should make a set of just teeny tiny stamps! I would keep it on my desk all the time as I am always scouting my sets for the tiny ones when making backgrounds!

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! I too miss the cd cases! But I bit the bullet and ordered a case of DVD cases and now I just don't allow myself to ink up my stamps till I put them in a case. I usually watch episodes of "the good wife" while doing so! That really helps! LOL!
