A Cupcake and flowers

Hello Everyone,

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful week end. My weekend was great, we had gorgeous weather where I am from and I could not stay inside. So, I did not get many cards made. These cards were made on Friday and this is the first chance that I have had to post them.

Birthday Cupcake

This card was an inspiration from Kristina Werner's Finally Friday video that she did over at Two Peas in a bucket last Friday 3/11/11). I am submitting this in the Hero Arts Flickr challenge, their 50grand challenge, and over at Two Peas. Stamps used are Hero Arts: Cupcakes CL158, Daisy Outline Pattern S5472, Dots & Flowers S5213, birthday Messages CL139. This card was inspired by Kristina Werner from her Finally Friday's series.

Blooming Wildflowers

I got the idea for this card from Splitcoast Stampers. I stamped the image with Hero Arts Grass Green chalk in and then glued paper flowers on top of the stamped flowers. When the glue was dry, I put the whole image inside the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I am not sure that I like the results of this card. If I made this card again, I would not stamp the card base, I would leave it white and just stamp the sentiment under the image. Stamps used are Hero Arts: Blooming Meadow CG171, Envelope Pattern, and Birthday Messages CL139 and envelope pattern S5507.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments.
