Floral Birthday!

Hi everyone.  Just a quick post today.

I spent some time in the craft room yesterday.  One of my daughters had a friend over for a sleepover, so as they are older now - I really don't have to worry about keeping them entertained :-)

I had bought this little 6"  by 6" pack of paper, by First Edition called Bird Song.  It is such a pretty stack.

I had coloured up this flower from Create with TLC,  called Carnation  Day Freebie - a while back, but just never got around to putting it on a card.  I used my Spectrum Noir markers for this flower.

The image was so easy to colour and I cut it out with a Spellbinders Labels 8 die.

Inked all the edges of all the layers in pink.  The little sentiment stamp was a freebie in a set from a magazine.  I added a little bit of looped ribbon and a bow to finish off the front.

For the inside, I used the same papers as the front.  Slightly different in that I put the thin strip behind the green panel, therefore giving room to leave a message.

I think either my camera is on it's way out, or my eye sight is getting worse.  I can't seem to get a decent clear picture lately!  These look slightly out of focus, and yet I am not doing anything different.

Anyways, I hope you are all having a good week.

  29. Karon, firstly let me apologize for being so unbelievably behind (with everyone). Things have been trying, but I am happy to be back. Your card is filled with so much to adore! That paper stack has been on my wish list.. you've used it so beautifully. The stamp is stunning, perfectly colored, and looks perfect atop those designs. I love the sweet bow and the pretty interior, too. Beautifully done, as always. :o)
