Today Blooms for You

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Feels like Monday, doesn't it?  Well, sort of...all the days run together lately!  I had a little time to stamp yesterday before our little picnic, and made a couple of birthday cards to replenish my supply!  This one uses the sketch from Global Design Project as well as the colors from Cupcake Inspirations Challenge:

I love both of these!  And here's my creation:

I used the retired set Gorgeous Grunge to repeatedly stamp a black and vanilla strip for the top and bottom portion of my card, and layered on a pretty piece of Best Dressed DSP.  I am sad to see the Perennial Birthday set go; I think I'll keep it around for a while!  I stamped and embossed it in black and watercolored it with Blushing Bride ink, then fussy cut it out:

I layered it on some black and white baker's twine and adhered it to the edge of a Basic Black circle that encases a Very Vanilla circle that was embossed with the new Ornate Floral EF.  I stamped a sentiment from the same set and free-handed cut it out:

On the inside, I stamped a big sentiment and some Blushing Bride flowers:

Another one for my stash!  Thanks for popping in today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Card Concept challenge too!

It felt great to get outside and play some cornhole!  I am going to need lots of practice if I am to be any good at this at all!  Cassidy beat Grampy, but he was throwing left-handed, so I am not sure how fair it was!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Cool border...I thought it was washi tape! Pink and black...what's not to love! Cornhole is so much fun. Have you ever watched the tournaments on tv? Those folks know what they're doing!!

I think this is so pretty, LeAnne … you have to know I adore the dots! A darling birthday card, but pretty enough for a wedding card!
You have perfect form... and it looks like the game was a hit!

Oh, I LIKE this so much, what a darling darling card!! Looks like you guys had a great time. I'm betting your bean bag was a hole in one!

This is very pretty LeAnne and the colour combo works really well too. A great combination of bits and pieces! Looks like fun to be had outdoors too!
