Spring Birthdays

Spring Birthdays

Spring is my favorite season for birthdays (including mine!), and I’m counting the days till winter is finally over. These crocuses from the Spring Florals set are just perfect for a spring birthday card. I stamped them with Memento black ink and colored them in with Copic markers. It was fun to match up the Backgrounds 1 texturz plate with the retired Wild Wasabi Prints DSP. The layout I used is Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge (MTSC63).

Thanks for stopping by!

    Fresh colors and design… A real beauty!! Can’t wait for Spring either. At least we don’t live in Garrett Co. Donna told me that they have had 20 feet of snow at Wisp.

    You make it hard to look at winter. The colors are so fresh and the coloring work is great. Love the card.

    What a beautiful card! Please do tell how you make that most perfect bow. I can’t for the life of me get mine to look half as nice as yours. Is there a trick?

    I also love the color combo–very springy!
