stop and smell the flowers

this layout is for a color challenge at Scrap 'N Chat.  I did a lot of fussy cutting on this one - mostly using up scraps.  The quilled flower and bird were RAK's from an on-line scrappy friend.  Thanks Tania!!!

birthday girl

I used a sketch from My Sketch World.

For my challenge on Scrap 'N Chat I challenge you to use one of your very small stamps.  I stamped on a very subtle pp then punched it out with the flower punch.  Added a flower sticker that would be kind of lost all by it's self for the center of the flower which fit perfectly inside the small circle stamp.
