I find myself in the very proud mama seat this week, as I am doing this card to help my darling daughter as she is the hostess for this week's sketch challenge (SC190). I was sooo proud of her, as she came up with this layout all on her own. She is da little bomb!!
I am also LOVING this "Eastern Blooms" stamp set. Didn't love it at first, but it is soooo growing on me!!

Love the bright colors, Wendy. Usually I like anything that's got Eastern or Asian in the name, but I haven't fallen in love with this set yet...maybe I'll change my mind though, I do really like that flower you used as the main image!

I wasn't a fan of this stamp set, either - or Pacific Point, for that matter - but this card is making me re-think both! Great card, and you deserve to be a proud mama - your daughter did a ROCKIN' job with the challenge!

OMGosh, I TOTALLY thought that avatar was like someone putting their childs picture in there and NOT the designer of the CARD!!! You MUST be proud.....how OLD is SHE? When I saw your picture that's when I realized that a wee one made the cupcake card - it's awesome!!! (Oh, and your card is really pretty too!!)
