Live, Dance and Laugh

Happy Sunday all!
I wanted to share a card I worked on this week.  I actually used a stamp set on this one!  I really love creating with stamps and this is a set from Prickley Pear.  They also sell dies as well to go with it.  This set is called Flowers Clear Stamp Set. The card is 5x5.  First I cut a circle in the lower right corner then I airbrushed the background.  I took the circle I cut and stamped the sentiment in black then airbrushed it in yellow and taped it to the back of cut circle.  I stamped around the cut circle with the flower circle and colored the flowers.  Next I cut the flowers out, stamped them and colored them.  I cut half a tree out of a Memory Box tree die and pop dotted the flowers and a few leaves into place from Die-namics and Poppystamps dies. I stamped the musical notes onto background before placing tree. Then added the bird nest flower to tree. I popped up the background piece onto yellow embossed cardstock. Just a reminder!!  I'm giving away 4 prizes for my blogaversary.  I would love to have some new followers!!!! Check out the post just above to enter your name.  Thank you.
