I had some unexpected free stamping time yesterday, so I pulled out some pretty MME papers to use with the Seize the Birthday sketch:
I could go crazy with all the prints and patterns, but I finally decided on these:
I stamped a Papertrey flower on some white paper in Rich Razzleberry---another color I haven’t used in AGES----and used sponges to ink it with Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry, then fussy-cut it out.  The leaves were cut freehand, sponging the edges, then I folded them in half and ran them through my crimper for a fun 3D effect.
I stamped the flower again over my inside sentiment, this time using Pretty in Pink:
This also qualifies for the Catered Crop Flower Power challenge this week!  And since I already had the papers on my desk, I made another card with a similar layout, punching a flower out of some of the coordinating paper:
That little flower looked a little bare, so I added a ladybug from the Itty Bitties set…sorry, I am hooked on those little images!
Thanks for peeking in today!
The only way I could get Cassidy to eat her Cheerios last week:
