"Happy Birthday 2 U" by Christine Chain
Supplies - patterned paper: Bo Bunny, Echo Park, Crate Paper; ink: Tsukineko; paper ribbon: Basic Grey; letter stickers: October Afternoon, Lush by My Mind's Eye

I never seem to have enough cards for guys, so I decided to omit the hearts and use some funky "celebrate life" paper I had in my stash from Bo Bunny. I'm really pleased how it came out, and it was fun using a larger (5x7) size for a card!

"Love You Sweetheart" card by Amy Roller
Supplies - Patterned paper and cardstock: Stampin Up!; Dotted paper: My Mind's Eye; Chipboard heart: Making memories; Stamps: Stampin Up!, unknown

I decided before I started that I was going to use some of my scraps for this card. I dug out some things that I liked and started. I liked the swirl border in place of the stripe and really wanted more of it to show so on a whim I just left off the two end squares. That is another great thing about sketches, you can alter them to fit your papers, your style, or your mood at the moment. While I was changing things, I added a thin strip along the background border on top and bottom.

I added a few small sentiments to the bottom corner and popped up the remaining square in the middle. I added two layered hearts and inked the edges as well. This went together really quickly and I managed to use up some scraps out of my overflowing drawer!

"Happy Flowers" card by Shari Thurman
Supply List - Patterned Paper: Bella Blvd.; Self Adhesive Crystals: Zva Creative; Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink (Chestnut Roan); Ribbon: Craft Supply; Other: Cardstock

This card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". I cut my background piece, punched a border along the bottom and machine stitched around the edge. I hand cut three flowers and attached them to a 1 inch strip of yellow paper using 3D foam adhesive. I positioned it toward the bottom to allow room for my satin bow. I then added self adhesive crystals to brighten it up a bit.
