Happy Birthday to you

Hi everyone!  Looks like my mojo has returned!  Yay!!!  I was able to actually create some cards and not one ended up in the trash.  That is a good day!

All three of my cards today feature Tilly's Magic Garden stamp set illustrated by Lydia Evans for Catherine Pooler Designs.  The sentiment is from Young at Heart.

I had fun playing around with different color combos.  This one is Bellini with Orange Twist and Mint to Be and Aquatini.  I had to use Black Jack & Midnight for the leaves.

I think this one is my favorite of the three.  Do you have a favorite?

I used Bellini, Orange Twist, It's a Boy and Fiesta Blue. I have to tell you just how easy these were to create.  I first drew a light pencil line onto my card base. I then used one of Catherine's new acrylic blocks, which have grid lines on them, to stamp the flowers in a perfect line.  I just used one of the lines on the block and lined it up with my pencil line and voila, perfect stamping!

I am playing along over at Addicted to CAS: Florals.

and Seize the Birthday: No topping for me.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
