Off Season...

Yes, I know it's not Springtime in Virginia and we're getting ready for my favorite snowy time of year, but I think I need a little sunshiney sparkle to pep me up a bit.  I don't know about you, but I get happy when I see flowers!  So today, I'm sharing a card I created especially for the WoodwareUSA Challenge of the week:  Birthday Greetings.  Maybe I can send it to a friend in a sunny climate right now.  

I created this card using the ever-so-versatile set called Garden Greetings I love that many of the sentiment sets by Woodware include tiny images that coordinate with everything.  I seem to use these tiny images in a lot of my cards because they work so well in clusters, as added details to tags and fun focal images on tiny cards.  As you can see above, I stamped the cluster of flowers several times on the plain cardstock backing then stamped some additional ones to pop up off the page and give a FULL floral effect. 

Since I hadn't used any of the pink card packs I picked up at Joanne's a few months ago (a STEAL of a deal at $2.00 a pack of 8 cards and envies DCWV 5 1/2 x 5 1/2), I knew this was the perfect card to make with one of them.   

I really did want this card to be CAS...but I just can't seem to hold back...thus, CAS this is not.  It does have a lot of WHITE space, so perhaps that is as close as I'm going to get!  LOL...

I doodled a bit too.  I wanted to have some heart flowers included in the floral cluster since there was a cute little heart on the watering can.  Hope you enjoy!
