Birthday Blooms


Hi everyone.  Today's card is for my very good friend and fellow card maker, Bonnie (Stamping with Klass).  Happy Birthday Bonnie!  Have a wonderful day, my friend! :)

I wanted to send Bonnie a basket full of sunshine to brighten her day, so I filled this little basket with bright flowers and added some fun twine.

We met on-line and were also team members for about six months on the Merry Monday Challenge DT.  Bonnie makes beautiful CAS cards.  I admire her work and have learned lots from her as well as being inspired by her.

She has already received my card in the mail (actually over a week before her birthday) ... sometimes the postal service surprises me :) ... so now I'm sharing it here with you.







Stamps:  A Little Sentimental (Clearly Besotted)
Paper:  White (Neenah); Pear Pizzazz, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight (SU!)
Ink:  Pear Pizzazz, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Woven Basket die (Memory Box), Leafy Branch die (C.C. Designs), Hydrangea Punch (Martha Stewart), Lattice cut file, Silhouette Cameo, Mandarin Twine (The Twinery), sponges, stylus and mat, white gel pen
