Birthday Blossom

I can't count how many times I have seen a new punch/stamp combo and said, "I'm NOT going to get that!" Case in point ... the Build a Blossom punch/stamp combo ... I had NO interest in this ... seriously, I wasn't gonna buy it!!

But then, of course, you start seeing what other peeps are making with it ... and you cave ... same thing happened to me with the cupcake punch and the bird/branch punch ... wasn't gonna get THOSE, either. WhatEVER!!

So, this is what I came up with. I think it is going to take LOTS of experimenting to see what I can really do with this combo ... lots of pieces to play with, that's for sure!!

I can finally talk again (hooray!), but I still sound like Froggy the Gremlin (my dad always used to call me that when I would get laryngitis). I sooooo can't wait for spring and some warmer weather, how 'bout you??

So beautiful, Wendy! I was at a stamp camp two days ago and talked myself out of purchasing the Build a Blossom set, and then I see your magnificently beautiful card and I feel myself wanting, wanting, wanting! Resistance is futile! :-)
