Anita Bowden Premier, and a birthday girl at LIM

Neets is making her premier at Muse this week!  How could I not play along with her gorgeous inspiration?  See what I mean:
 
Bloomin' beautiful!
 
I spent a bit of time catching up at Anita's blog Neet & Crafty and found that a certain someone is celebrating a birthday at Less is More - decision made!!
 
I've drawn my inspiration from Neets' colors and design, the line drawn SSS flowers [snippets that only needed a touch of color], and dots - mine in the form of dotted vellum from PTI - over a card base of Fog-grey cardstock from SSS to mimic a bit of Neets' darling stamped grey dots.
 
For Chrissie's birthday celebration at LIM 234, and Muse #125:
 
Congrats to both wonderful,
and lovely ladies!!!

I need a vase of flowers like those on my kitchen table...so gorgeous! You do realize that this stroll of seeing one of your awesome cards followed by another and another is revealing your abundant creativity with even greater clarity! You may be glazing over at my comments, but I am becoming more enthralled with your talents with every post. Perhaps falling behind was a good thing...
