Sweet birthday wishes

Sweet birthday wishes published on No Comments on Sweet birthday wishes

The rain has ended and the plants are showing signs of spring!  I’m ready to start planting the early seeds in my vegetable garden tomorrow!  Can’t tell you how happy those things make me!!  I have a hostess club meeting next week and I am absolutely sure they are feeling just like me so I needed to make a spring card.  Of course, the puffy flower is all the rage these days so what better to use??  I just got this Tea Party DSP and I can see that I’ll be using it up fast.  Such pretty colors!  I know I have professed my adoration of ribbon before, but this SU satin ribbon is really fantastic.  I just got the Celery (HAD to, it goes so well with the Tea Party paper…LOL).  When I saw the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for this week, it was perfect for what I needed.

I love that it is a basic layout where you can really emphasize one focal point!  I cut the DSP in half and used both sides of the same sheet.  They were sponged with Certainly Celery ink to mimic the sponged look of the DSP.  I punched five layers out of various papers from the pack to give some character to the flower.  This flower is a little less puffy than some but I like that you can see the button!  After I crinkled the paper for the flower, I sponges those edges too.  The little “tag” is a slight change on the sketch but it worked better for me.

These little flowers really are fun.  I have another card with a full flower so the club can see both.  It is still cloudy here so the colors seem a little washed out on the card.  The sun is coming soon though and I’ll be out digging in the garden!  Have a great week!!  Thanks for stopping by!
