*** Bloom *** Inspire ***

Hello Friends!

{So stinkin' Excited that this card was chosen winner of TSTR on June 3rd...}

I have a sweet little card to share today! When I should be cleaning up...I end up playing! *grin*.  I pulled out my sweet little Paper Sweeties and got inky! I needed another stress reliever anyway! 

Here it is!
I started off with a white card base and I rounded the top corners. I followed by adding the yellow patterned paper to the card base after I rounded the top corners to match.  I stamped a banner from Paper Sweeties Fun Shapes and hung with some pretty Baker's twine in the upper left portion of the card.  I gave Abigail a dress from Jelly Bean Time and gave her a watering can to hold from May's release Live Love Grow
On some carnival tickets, I stamped the sentiments Bloom from Live Love Grow and Inspire from Beautiful.  Lastly I pleated some aqua satin ribbon from my stash embellishing with yellow buttons and twine.  I created a fluffy handmade flower from tissue paper to complete the look. 

I found inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room...
My watering can was inspired by the striped coffee mug.

Tammy,
I'm still smiling. At first glance it looked like someone had watered the flowers , hung the clothes out on the clothesline and changed to go to the opera. Sweet sweet card.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful artwork with us during these last days of May.
Abundant Blessings,
