A Betsy's Blossom Birthday

Once again I'm going quick and simple.  Here I used the cute little flower from the "Betsy's Blossoms" set.  I am now feeling that I actually got some use out of this set, so if it retires I won't feel so bad!

The base of the card is Early Espresso.  The flowers were stamped using More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.  

The center of the flowers were stamped using Early Espresso and the small trio flower image from the set.  That was an image I hadn't used yet!  

I  punched out the larger flower of the three using a 1/2" circle punch.  I attached them to the center of the flowers using Dimensionals and I colored the centers with a More Mustard marker.  

The words are from "Bring on the Cake."  They were stamped using Early Espresso ink.  And that was it, very quick and very simple.  It was so simple in fact that I made 6 of them.  I figured if I had to stamp each flower and wash off the stamp just to reink it with the next color, I might as well make several cards.  I could have stamped each color but I wasn't sure where they were going to land on the paper so I found it easier to just stamp each color as I went.  And yes, even doing that it was a quick card!  

Now being I have 6 of them I would like to mail four of them to a lucky reader in celebration of my blog reaching half a million hits!!!  WOW!!!  Just leave a comment on this post only and I'll draw a name on Wednesday and send the cards off to them.  The lucky 13 in 2013 is still going strong!

OOPS, that's one and a half million hits, not half a million!  Silly me!
