Happy Birthday and Welcome Baby



Yay--I had some crafty time today.  Here is what I made.....Make it Monday #280 challenge is 'Outside the Box' and I used some new Beautiful Berries Spring stamps as my flowers and a woodgrain background stamp as the "box".



I was inspired by the sketch at The Flower Challenge #7, and am also entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Happy Birthday and Addicted to Stamps and More #236: Anything Goes.








I was inspired by the sketch at Retro Rubber #59 and used some 4 or 5 year old Stamps from Hero Arts and Paper Smooches on my card.


My colors were inspired by the colors at CAS Colours & Sketches #217 and Less is More #322: 3 Pastels.  I am also linking this up at AAA Cards #87: Shiny Spring, where the colors are spring, and the glossy accents on the eyes are my shiny option.





Thanks for Visiting
