Happy H{ippity} Hop - January 31

Here's my week 4 card for {ippity}'s January 2011 Challenge - use brads.  I don't remember who makes the eyelet pattern paper.  The flower was made by using many stamps, first I stamped Gurnsey Gingham, Dots for Sure, and A Bit of Burlap with Moulin Rouge - Palette ink on white cardstock.  Then, I stamped this blossom from Now and Always on each, cut and assembled my flower holding it together with a gold brad.  The stitching was done with Bazzill's In Stitchz "Surprise Party" template.  The butterfly and sentiment were from Now and Always.

This is for my personal "Magazine Monday" challenge.  The card "Poinsettia Music Card" by Terri Milstead was my inspiration (found in Paper Crafts Magazine Holiday Cards & More vol. 5, page 18).  I stamped the music from Music of My Heart on tracing paper and used Tim Holtz Tea Bag Distressed Ink.  I then stamped flowers from Now and Always on sheet music (rescued from a Hymnal in the recycle bin).  The sentiment is from Sing a New Song. 

Now to share something cute.  This is what greeted me Friday night when I was working in the craft room:
My two year old son, Damian.  Luckily I had the camera for taking pics of my cards.  
Thanks for looking!  Please stop by the Ippity Blog for all the Hop participants, here.
