happy blooming birthday...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a quick post today.  Made this sweet little birthday card using some Simon Says Stamp, Avery Elle and A Jillian Vance Design products.  I will be posting this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (use a lovely color palette) and AAA Card challenge (their 1st birthday celebration).   I also posted this in the Simon Says Stamp flickr challenge (#18).  ETA:  Last minute add to the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge:  use SSS products.


This card turned out pretty much exactly how I envisioned it would!  Don't you love it when that happens??  I do, lol!  The flowers were created using the Simon Says Stamp Scribble Flowers stamp and die set.  The main panel was die cut using the Avery Elle Dotted Elle-ments.  Die cut all the flower pieces, stamped them and then layered.  I finished the card using this sweet little sentiment from the A Jillian Vance Design stamp set Showers of Blessings.   Would you look at those yummy inspiration photos??  Makes me want to head over to our totally awesome local cupcake shop, Hello Cupcake, and pick up some yummy cupcakes!!

This card is fantastic! I really love the way you used the Simon Says Stamp flowers! The grungy/weathered edges were such a clever and unique idea and I also like the color palette you chose. It's energetic, but not blinding and hits the right note between bold and subtle. You even added life to that white background with the dotted edges. Well done and thank you so much for sharing your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
