Sending Birthday Wishes - The Challenge #73

Happy Tuesday!

I'm soooo late with my DT post for
this week's
The Challenge!

This week is an inspiration challenge and just look at all those scrumptious items in the photo to pull out all kinds of creativity! Just fabulous!  Lesley is THE BOSS at finding the best challenge themes and inspiration!

Last week was crazy with Mother's Day, trying to make cards, caring for my grandpup, and then my washer went beserk for two days all before going away to a stamp show to help my friend, Debbie, owner of Paper Sweeties, promote and sell her stamp line.  And then, of course, when I come home to finish, Pic Monkey photo editing chooses to give me grief by not saving my photos. Ugh!  Looks like I go back to Pixlr or find another one now. 

Anyway, here is my card, FINALLY ---

The background is a hexagon background stamp I stamped in pear tart.  Then I cut the wreath die (WPlus9).  The apple stamp and die are from the sets Homegrown by Paper Sweeties and the lady bug and sentiment from Enchanted Garden by SugarPea Designs stamps made for SOA. I colored the apple and ladybug with Copics.

Now go check out the rest of the Design Team's beautiful projects:
