Sometimes people can just take the wind out of our sails. In my case that happened awhile ago. I've still have enjoyed stamping but I had decided not to put anything on my blog or post on Splitcoast. I wish I could afford to have a fabulous blog but I must thank all my loyal customers who want me to get this blog up and going again. I don't plan to post on Splitcoast anymore. I will only be posting on SU's demo site and my blog. To be honest, I find it just takes to much time to do it all.
Here is a card I made a few weeks ago. I positively love the new Build a Blossom and coordinating punch in the Occasions mini. For this card I started with a crumb cake base. Then used my scalloped circle die and the big shot for the concord crush half circle in the back. The flower petals were stamped with pretty in pink on pink pirouette card stock. I took a retired button and put one of our fabulous pearl on top for the center. Do you know how hard it is for me not to put a pearl or rhinestone on a card now? I layered a piece of yummy Lap of Luxury DSP under the flower, as well as a strip of the dotted scalloped ribbon border. The sentiment is from another set from the mini, Bring on the Cake. I have to say I can never seem to have enough birthday sentiment sets. This one seems to cover all ages very well.
