Birthday Bouquet!

Good morning to ya and happy midweek!! Thought I'd show you a card I made for our Western New York Spring Fest gathering. That smart Tracy had a birthday card contest with all cards being donated to her church's sunshine group! Now wasn't that smart! I happily participated!
The contest was won by the FABULOUSLY TALENTED Michele Ghent! Her card was spectacular and everyone loved it! It is the one I voted for! Anyway here is Tilda fromt he Butterfly collection with her basket of sparkly flowers to wish someone a Happy Birthday! Diana has MANY of these stamps available NOW and at the best prices! Please feel free to leave here and visit Magnolia-licious! I used Mellow Moss and Pretty in Pink with Basic Grey's Porcelain papers. I made one of my favorite new things-a stickpin for embellishment! This is a favorite layout of mine! You get to see lots of the dp but it accomodates a larger image too. I think this card was 5x5 inches square.
Here she is in her close up shot!


And the inside with this OLD, but well used sentiment and more Porcelain paper!
Thanks for visiting! My count is ever growing and so is my gratitude to those of you who visit and comment! THANK YOU!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Tracy said...

Cheryl, I loved your card!! I seriously wanted to keep it for myself. It is one to hand deliver though and I thought you might like to know where it is headed. We have a woman in our church who has a rare degenerative brain disorder which is slowly taking away her abilities and her life. She is now completely confined to a wheel chair and needs quite a bit of assistance. Today a group of women from church is taking her out to lunch for her birthday. She stamped and crafted at one point in her life and I know she will adore your card! Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents!

I remember this one, Cheryl, and especially loved the addition of the pin! I read Tracy's comment...how nice to know your card is going to someone who will truly appreciate it! Lovely card!

Cheryl! what a little beauty this is... wonderful coloring as always!.
when you see these little gals colored, it makes you want every one,, and that can't happen.
I am waiting for the magnolias with pets to come out.. I have seen little hints of them here and there.. but no mention of just when and what they will all be.. I did see the cat one, and love it.
keep the beautful cards comeing.. thanks for all the inspirations to create!
