Birthday Pizzazz

OMG, I've been away for SO long! I haven't crafted for more than 2 weeks, how sad!!!!! It's been a crazy couple of weeks. My brother moved in May 1 so we've been trying to organized things. It hasn't been super fun but we're getting there. The pet population has almost doubled in the house now, 5 animals. I know, I know. I had 2 cats and a dog, my brother has 2 cats so...they are all getting along pretty well, hissing here and there. I think they'll be good friends soon!

So, I have FINALLY crafted!! Oh the excitement! I did two challenges in one. The first is the Weekend Sketch Challenge on Mary Jo Albright's Blog and the second is the My Time Colour Challenge on Lauren Meader's Blog.

I really LOVE these colours together. Aren't they just SO summery??

I stamped some flowers from Petal Pizzazz on White card stock then I embossed with iridescent ice over the whole piece, it is super sparkly!!!
So, my picture taking abilities still have a little to be desired but I'll figure something out. I hope you can see everything ok.
The inside has a little "blemish" but it happened at the very end, I wasn't going to do it all over again! :)
I hope you enjoy!

I love the sparkly flowers in such bright colours. You rocked this challenge. Your card makes me want to vacation somewhere hot.

I wouldn't have even noticed the blemish if you hadn't mentioned it ;)
