happy spring

Hello and welcome to my new friends.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Today I have a cute little card to share.  I saw this really fantastic tutorial on Pam Sparks blog a few weeks ago that I wanted to try.  Who knew it would be so easy and fun to do.  I didn't completely follow the full tutorial, but I did take a few things away from it.  I especially love the wood grain on the kraft cs fence.  I used one of the adorable Birgitta's from C.C. Designs, Sweetheart Birgitta.  This is the first time I've inked her up which means I am still on track to ink up my un-inked stamps.  Not sure why I waited so long to use her, she's well, a sweetheart!  (lol)

I was so happy when I received my C.C. cutter dies.  I used the fenceflower border, and the grass border for my scene.  This also is sort of a case of Pam's card.  I used Distress inks to color the flowers, grass, butterflies and fence.  Added white suns to the centers of the flowers.  Birgitta is colored with Copics and in a rainbow of colors.  The white clouds were sponged on to kraft cs with a stencil (punched cloud and it's negative) and white Color Box pigment ink.  The sentiment is from the new So Wordy set by AmyR.  I really love how this one turned out.


Alrighty, Mahalo for stopping by today!  Hoping you all have a lovely day!!

I need to make more cards this shape, perfect for all the legal sized envelops I have when I bought a big box at Costco a couple years ago! I don't have nearly enough bills so send with them!
