Birds Of A Feather 22

Hi Ladies! T.G.I.F. :) Just a quick lil' Tweet here! I am hosting a graduation party for my 3 girlfriends / co-workers this weekend so I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get things prepared. I took a break from dancing with the vacuum cleaner & pressure washer to type up this post so I could share this card with all of you :) For color inspiration, I used this week's color combo from The Color Throwdown #60, CTD60, & for the sketch inspiration, I used this week's Mojo Mondays sketch #104, MOJO104. Week after week, the DT's from both of these sites offer beautiful examples for inspiration, as well as all the other participants! Go see for yourself! Maybe you too will become inspired to play along:) Do you have any BIG weekend plans? Be Sweet!

Here is some lil' details on how I made this card: I inked up the flower & stem images from the SU Cheep Talk set with SU Barely Banana & Green Galore ink & stamped my own background DP. I inked up the circle image stamp from the PTI Beautiful Blooms set with SU Taken With Teal (I don't have Bermuda Bay ink or paper) & stamped the center of the flower.

The Taken With Teal strips are embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF. To create a "poppin" feeling, I punched some flowers using an EK Success flower punch, layered them x2 then put a Heidi Grace brad in the center of each.

I inked up the lil' flower image from Fiskars Wishes All Around set & stamped all the way around the scallop to create a flower frame, then used my Copic E77 to give each lil' flower a center dot :)

Ingredients Used: Stamps: SU Best Yet, Cheep Talk, Fiskars Wishes All Around, PTI Beautiful Blooms Paper: SU Taken with Teal, Green Galore, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White PTI Lemon Tart Ink: SU Taken with Teal, Green Galore, Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana Sprinkles: Spellbinders Scalloped Circle & Circle nesties, EK Success punches Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF, Heidi Grace brads

Very tweet little card!!! I love it! I know there are people who dance with their vacuums (I am not one of them---I push mine around to show it who is boss) but I never met anyone who dances with a pressure washer? You need to get someone else to do that dance, girl! I hope you had fun this weekend!!! THanks for sharing your delightful card!
