Happy B-Day


In my hankering for spring, I seem to be making a lot of cards with nature themes!  Considering yesterday was in the 60s (or so they said!), and today’s high is supposed to be 29, can you blame me?  At least it can be springy in my craft room!  Today’s card uses the Lunchtime Sketch 305  from TechnoStamper:

and the “green” theme from the Kraft Journal:

LeAnne Puglise WeeInklings Happy BDay Stampin Up

I pulled out an old Cornish Heritage Farms stamp for most of my images; the background is a retired SU set called Floral, stamped in Baked Brown Sugar on Crumb Cake.  The woodgrain is a digital paper from Raspberry Road.  The florals are stamped in Pear Pizzazz, and the bee and sentiment are in Soft Suede.  I don’t know if you can see the sparkle on the bee’s wings:


And I had one last piece of shabby seam binding from this project, so I used it here, tying it with some Linen thread and added a button & pearl:


I also used a Cornish Heritage Farms sentiment for the inside as well:


Thanks for visiting!

It was nice enough yesterday to go outside and blow some bubbles!



Enjoy your day!

Such a pretty vintagey spring flavoured card. This mix of colours and stamps works so well toghether. I really do like that inside sentiment. I love that you added a heart to the front too.
It must have felt so good to be able to be outside yesterday blowing bubbles. It looks like Cassidy was enjoying it.
