Birthday Blooms Stampin' UP!Hi Everyone! What a FUN team meeting we had yesterday :)! We made a SHAKER CARD with my 2016-2017 Annual Catalog PreOrder goodies, swapped cards using a color pallet as a theme inspiration, looked through the new catalog together AND THEN held a Facebook Meeting for EVERYONE! I'll share the Designer Paper Dolls' (my team) cards tomorrow..they are AWESOME! and the Shaker Card we made later in the week!

Above is my May 2016 Swap Card featuring the stamp set Birthday Blooms. And here's what the inside and the coordinating envelope looks like:
