Blossom Workshop on the Go

With a Twist
The Blossom card making WOTG offers three designs in the kit.
I usually like to make alternate designs to offer more variety. 
Card # 1 original design with the exception of the
black ink. It wasn't working for me so I used Smoothie.
 Card #1 with a twist. Cut the same parts but turn the card
and add more flowers. 
 Card #2 original design. Again with the exception of the 
black ink. I used Lagoon ink in place of black.
 Card #2 with a twist. Cut the same parts and turn the
card one turn. Lower the green band, stamp stars and
candles with the word WISH and add 4 you.
 Card #3 original design. Use Pear ink in place of the black.
Card #3 with a twist. Cut the same parts but add one
more B&T strip. Stamp the sentiment and some
candles. Add your bow at the bottom.
CTMH Supplies:
B&T Duos: Blossom
Cardstock: White Daisy, Kraft, Pear
Stamps. Blossom WOTG
Ink: Smoothie, Pear, Canary(Honey was too bold)
Embellishments: Extra thick Twine, Coral Reef Sequins

Easter Blessings to You

A Butterfly: Born Again in New Life
I chose this butterfly Border Card from Artfully Sent to say 
Happy Easter to you because the butterfly represents the new life 
after the caterpillar is gone. Just as we can have a new life in the 
Risen Christ after His death on the cross. He is Risen! Risen Indeed!

Granddaughters Turn 20

Bye Bye Teenage Years
As my three granddaughters celebrate their 20th birthday
I made each one a special card to mark the occasion.
Using the quote bubbles on this card makes it fun to send
multiple birthday messages. Mixing it up a little more with some 
older papers(Confetti Wishes) and some new papers(Blossom)
to fill in the bubbles. 
Fill in the letters with some Paper Fundamentals from
the Whimsey Assortment. Accent with flowers from 
Happy to be Friends stamp set.
A birthday cake with layers of Paper Fundamentals
and Blossom paper pack papers.
All cards are cut from the Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge.
