For my birthday card I used the large flower from the Sunflowers set and the birthday sentiment from Kids Play. I stamped the image twice coloring both and using the center and top petals from the second image and the leaf to pop up over the first bottom image. I also colored a third petal with the ladybug and popped it up even further. All of the paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper pad. A little lace and a few buttons finish off. This is one of my favorite images and I really enjoy coloring it!

Speaking of candy, what do you win if you comment or play today? Take a peek!!! We’ll be giving 7 of these prize packs away! That’s right, SEVEN!
