Purple Onion Critters Love

A couple years ago, I used to think making cards with flowers were a challenge. They weren't my favorite images to use. Now, I noticed that I've been doing a lot more cards with flowers. I kind of miss my cutesy critters.
So, last night, I decided to take out my Purple Onion stamps and play with Puddles, Buttercup & Peanuts for their Birthday challenge.
The triangle background was my left over from trying out the faux letterpress technique. I used the Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder and rub it with various color ink pad and then emboss the paper. The result is the gradient color background.
I was like... aw... cuteness... where have you been. I haven't done much cute design lately and it's kind of refreshing to go back to it. :)
Oh, also... if you would kindly check out CardMaker blog today, I'd so appreciate it. I am sharing a fun technique there. Here's a sneak peek of my card. Can you guess what technique I am sharing?? And, isn't the bird cute??

Thank you for your visit here and I'll see you on the next post. Cheers....
