Something Old and Something New

I am entering the Sunny Challenges & Creations challenge today, they have a combination of a sketch and a birthday theme.  I am behind on sending out birthday cards at the moment so I decided this was a great opportunity to kill two birds with one stone!

Speaking of birds, I just love the little bird in Betsy's Blossoms.  This was one of the sets we could buy in pre-order and I just LOVE it!  The big bursting blossom is also part of the set, as are the stamped images on the background paper.  I made 19 of these cards, using a variety of the retiring in-colours, matching the main flower image and border on the framelit to the background card stock.  Now I just have to pop them in the post and hope the recipients like them!

Happy Stamping


  1. So glad the challenge was the inspiration you needed to get the job done. I too am falling in love with this stampset. The bird is really cute. I just adore your card. Thanks for joining us this week at Sunny Challenges and Creations.

  2. Gorgeous card Monique. You have used this set to your advantage & it showcases the set so well. Thanks for playing along with us this week at Sunny Challenges & Creations.

  3. Monique, this is beautiful! I so love what you have done with the sketch from this week. I wasnt too sure about this set, but seeing what you have done with it I am sold and it will be one that will find a place with my other stamps.The colour combination that you have used is beautiful and thatnk you so much for playing along with us at Sunny Challenges and Creations this week.

  4. This is really lovely, Monique. I love how you've stamped on the DSP for the bottom slanted panel - just beautiful. Thanks for playing along with us at Sunny Challenges & Creations, and congratulations on such a prolific stamping session!
