I am planning a Community Volunteer Workshop for Homewood Retirement Community on June 14.  This is a card I cased and modified for the elderly residents at Homewood.  I used the Ice Cream Parlor from SAB this year and the Cup Cake, Little Heart, Scallop Circle and Modern Label Punches.  Did you realize that many punches were used on the front.  Amazing sometimes how many I can use in one card.  The Stamp Sets used are Teeny Tiny Wishes (a favorite) and A Word for You (inside card) which says Happy Birthday with a cherry on top.  Seemed appropriate.
I ran the Melon Mambo through the BIG SHOT Polk a dotted Embossing Folder and also used Daffodil Delight, Whisper White and Pacific Point.  Ink used was Pacific Point.

Thought I would catch you off guard with this one today.  I have been posting allot of flower based cards because, well, I like them.  But in honor of my 6 year old Grandson, SAM, visiting us from Georgia, I decided to post a card a whole lot different today.  Cybil M.
