Boho Birthday!

I absolutely had to have the new Boho Blossom set from My Favorite Things when it came out. As a matter of fact, this is my very first MFT stamp set ever! I love the femininity of this set. But, once I got it, I truly did not know what to do with it. I truly did struggle with this card, and revisited many times throughout the day. In the end, I like how it turned out, but boy do I feel drained!
I knew I wanted to use my new set, with Kraft paper and Versamagic Dew drops Aegean Blue ink (I love this color but have such a hard time with it because I have almost nothing to match it). That was where the creativity ended. I had nothing! I put it with a million things (well, it felt like it anyway) and ended up using Basic Black from SU! to make the image stand out.

I thought about putting a big brad in the center, but I really like the center of this flower. Plus, I wanted to submit this to the Caardvarks contest to use eyelets, so a brad would have been too much. The eyelets are Antique Copper from Making Memories.

Then I saw my Stardust Stickles in the drawer and had an epiphany. I don't use them near as much as I should. So I added some stickles for some glitz and some Organza ribbon from Joanns, and WALLAH! Sounds like it shouldn't have taken all that long, but trust me it did! Here is another pic so you can see the glimmer of the stickles...

There has been so much going on here, that I truly have no creative juices flowing through my veins. Hence the reason I have not posted a thing in over a week. We are in the beginning stages of building our very first brand spanking new house, so we have been quite busy finalizing plans and meeting with the builder, etc. I can not wait! My son just wants to move so he can have bunk beds, I have another agenda *wink* (can you say stamp room???)
I have other things done, and posts I could do, but just haven't felt like doing it. I have a list of projects that I want to accomplish, but haven't touched one. However, I am making my kids costumes for Halloween, and promise to post them here after the big reveal. I am very excited about those and hope they turn out as good in real life as they look in my head. Not much does these days!

Well, I hope my blog gets more interesting with more posts and more projects. With two little ones, I don't make the time to update it as I should. It is kind of like the family website I started when my daughter was first born, it hasn't been updated in over a year :-( GASP!
Have a fabulous Friday! Thanks for visiting.
