Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: You, Me and Baby Makes Three!

This week on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge our challenge was to make a Baby card or gift. This weeks prize is fab... are you ready? This ADORABLE Magnolia stamp by Magnolia Down UnderWith the weather FINALLY getting warmer, I'm in the mood for SPRING! So I decided to make a baby wash cloth bouquet! I even MADE my own container! (I'll put up a tutorial for this very soon!). I couldn't resist making these adorable baby wash cloth roses and adding some glittery butterflies. The butterflies are attached to small bits of wire with glue dots, so I can form them to my liking within the flowers. My container was made with a large cardstock circle and a strip of cardstock that I had embossed (gosh, haven't done THAT in ages!). I then took my cardstock strip, scored a 1/2" on the long side, folded it, then cut slits to the fold. I then eased it around my circle...easy peasy! Thanks for looking, I can't wait to see what you come up with!
