Spring Birthday Card

Good Morning!  It is bright and sunny here which brightens the mood of the day!  I created a spring birthday card using a sketch from Frosted Designs.

I am also trying to follow a clean and simple design with this card which is a bit hard for me because I always want to add more and more to my cards.  

I used an image from Some Odd Girl for this card called "Celebration Mae".  She is only available for purchase through a Created from Color class kit.

Hey everyone!  I have been feeling a bit under the weather so it has been a bit since my last post.  My housework is calling me but I wanted to sit for a moment and post this card I made using a My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch.

The weather has not been cooperating lately, we have been having a lot of cold and dark days.  Yuck.  So I wanted to make a bright fun card for todays post.  There is nothing like rainbow colors to brighten your mood.  :)

Paper - My Mind's Eye
Sizzix - Hello die
Martha Stewart punch - three butterflies
Distress Ink - black soot

Well back to cleaning...
