Bud Birthday

Hi again!  I've got a late post of another card I completed this week while taking some vacation.  One more day tomorrow before going back to work and I hope to sneak in some more card making time amidst other activities.

Tonight my card is for Mojo Monday.  The Hey There Buds stamp has been sitting on my desk for a while, waiving and asking to be used, so I decided this would be a great sketch in which to break it in.

The stamp was sizable enough that I decided to make a 5" x 7" card to encompass all the design elements of the layout.  The light pastel colors of Sweet Sorbet dictated the color them of the card.

I used markers to color the rubber, which was then stamped on Whisper White card stock and cut out with the Circles Collection framelit.  A very neglected Starburst framelit was dusted off and used for the base underneath, cut from Pistachio Pudding card stock. 

I added Coastal Cabana sequins around the main image and a Baked Brown Sugar sequin to the middle of the flower that was snipped out and popped up on dimensionals.  A pearl was then added to the middle of each sequin.  A fun sketch that came together easily.

Thanks for dropping by!  I hope to be back tomorrow to share at least one more card I've completed before going back to work on Thursday.
