Real Flowers Birthday

Can I just first say that my mojo is G-O-N-E, gone! I think I left it at the animal shelter last weekend when I finalized kitten adoption paperwork, because ever since we brought sweet Rocki home, I've wanted to do little else but cuddle with her! Good times! Except for this morning at 4 am, when the meowing began in earnest. Thus (in part) the delay in my post today. Just didn't have time get this photographed between oversleeping and rushing off to back-to-back football games. I feel like I'm letting y'all down double today!

Today's card is my sample for Jen's Sketch For You To Try. The flowers are from Hero Arts' Real Flowers set. I stamped them onto Prism Simply Smooth White in various VersaMagic inks. The fun die-cut frame is the Frame Back Ornate #6 by Sizzix. Patterned paper scraps are from Prima's new Fairy Flora 6x6 pad. The tag holds the sentiment "Celebrate Your Day" from Flourishes' Fanciful Flourishes set.

Here's the sketch:

I know my animals cut into my stamping time, especially when they are new in my house and learning to behave. That happens every few weeks with the foster pets here.

I think your card is beautiful. I love the layers of white and the mat around your main image. There are so many wonderful details on this card.

I agree, your mojo hasn't gone anywhere. This is absolutely gorgeous!! With the weather being so much like late Fall here, this brings back the feeling of spring and summer when looking at it. Love it!!

Love your card Amy - congratulations on your new kitty. Good for you!

Michelle said...

Oh, I absolutely LOVE this card, Amy! I have to disagree with you about your mojo being gone! It's exactly where it's supposed to be! :)

Viv said...

I wish my mojo was as bad as yours!!!
Amy, you never let anyone down!!
(Don't blame you with your new fur-baby, I'd be exactly the same)!
Your card is fabulous, I love the colour scheme and the little doodads here and there. Brilliant!
Hugs Viv xxx

Letting us down? With this beauty? NEVER!! I love that frame and how that sweet butterfly is on the bow!

Marisa said...

If my cards looked like that when my mojo was gone I'd be adopting kittens daily LOL!

Love all the white space and the flowers are beautiful. Fun frame around them too.

Give Rocki a snuggle for me and make sure you post a picture! Nothing is nicer than a purring cat in your lap, that's for sure - enjoy :)
