Back to Flowers & Girlieness…

Though I’ve actually enjoyed making male cards lately, I still missed not using flowers and other typical girlie embellishments like lace and pearls, so here’s now a female birthday card stuffed with bellies and girlieness. Once I had started I simply couldn’t make myself stop…  😳 Less is more, but more is better, as they say… 😀

Some weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be picked the random winner for Paperplay’s Challenge and the prize was this gorgeous stamp “Melinda with Bouquet” from Whiff of Joy.

This stamp had been on my wishlist for quite some time so to say that I was thrilled is an understatement. :-)

The sketch I used is from Crafting Life’s Pieces- a sketch challenge blog I recently discovered; their  sketches are great and so much fun to work with!
