STB 1 - Feminine

Good morning, Friends! I am having a hard time waking up this morning! Ugh! I kept thinking that it was Sunday and I could sleep in a little. But I realized I was wrong and now I am downing the coffee to help me get going - lol! Looks like I need a day to do some stamping. I have quite a few cards I need to make and then I also have a swap to get ready for. I want to have all this done as we will be leaving for Las Vegas on Friday! Yea!! We are all looking forward to that!

Today's card was inspired by a new sketch challenge blog called Seize the Birthday. Each week they will have a new sketch and alternate between feminine and masculine birthdays. For the first week they have started with feminine. Ladies first!! Anyway, this is what I came up with. A flagged strip of Sahara Sand is adhered to a flagged strip of Sycamore Street designer paper and then to a piece of Island Indigo that was run through the Big Shot with the Honeycomb embossing folder and then to a card base of Island Indigo. Whew!! The flower from Mixed Bunch is stamped with Tangerine Tango onto Whisper White and punched with the Blossoms punch. I also punched two leaves from Lucky Limeade with the Blossom Petal builder punch. These are adhered to the back of the flower and then popped up onto the card. I punched a 3/4" circle from Island Indigo and adhered this to the flower center. I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Island Indigo onto a strip of Whisper White and flagged the end. This is tucked behind the Pool Party button with White baker's twine which is adhered with glue dots. The button is from the Sycamore Street ribbon and button pack. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
