Bloomin' Froggy & Case'ing Melanie


I just had to do it! I cased this Bloomin Baby card of Melanie's from April 2004! I can hardly believe it's almost 4 years old! I remember getting this card in a swap from her and thought it was the cutest! So how fitting for me to CASE it with one of her very own designed stamp sets Just so Hoppy! I love the Terrific Tulips (which I don't think I will get rid of, it's so timeless). Instead of popping the big tulip up like Melanie did on her card, I cut a slit in the cardstock & slipped my frog in. Then figured he should have a little tulip bouquet of his own! I got the sentiment from a retired hostess only set from last year called Blooming with Happiness (stamped on vellum & adhered with celery eyelets). I used my color spritzer tool on the vanilla background with a celery marker. It's just perfect when you don't want a stark empty background.

I'm so very proud of you, Melanie - you've come a long way, baby!!
