I've really needed a bunch of birthday cards is the newest one for a stamping friend of mine, Pat.

I started out using a beautiful card stock color from Gina K Designs called Applemint. Next I used a white layer and then a layer of DP from the Little Princess Collection made by Recollections. Using MFT Zig Zag Stitched Oval STAX, I made the center ovals from both Applemint and white card stock. The flower image is one of my very favorite floral images called Rose Garden, made by Fun Stampers Journey. Copic markers YG11, RV10, and R81 were used to color the flowers and leaves. Blueprints 29 die by MFT was used to cut the pieces for my greeting which is from SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  To give my card a little bit of razzle dazzle, I used a couple of Go Green sequins to finish it off.
I hope you liked your card, Pat!

Until next time...

Happy Easter everyone!  I stumbled upon an Easter digital image that I've had for a few years and have never used. Digital images are easy....they take up no space, you can just print them off, and there are no stamps to clean afterwards!

Lovely Lilac card stock - SU
Tempting Turquoise card stock - SU
Green Galore card stock - SU
Daffodil Yellow card stock - SU
DP - Plaid Patterns - MFT
Blueprints #20 - MFT
Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frames - MFT
Various Copics
Wink of Stella-clear (used for the center of the flower & the eggs)

Until next time...
