Spring Flowers at STB


Hello, I hope you are having a good week! SUPER busy one for me. It is one of those weeks where you have something to do ever single day. It is funny how that happens and how the rest of the calendar is bare. Today over at Seize the Birthday our topping is Spring Flowers. It was selected by the queen of florals herself-Tae Eun.

Card Details: Luck for me I have a dear friend that I borrowed this set from and I knew it was going to come in handy for this challenge. It is from Pretty Pink Posh and called Crocus Flowers. First, I heat embossed both the stems and the flowers in white and then came back and did a very quick watercoloring. A watercolorist I am NOT! I did a little Oxide ink and splatters on my background and the greeting is done on the computer as I am really tired of my birthday stamps and I wanted the perfect tone of lilac. A few Honey Bee Dew drops and I was done.

I am also going to link my card up over at The Flower Challenge where they are looking for Pastel Flowers.

Hope you will pop on over to STB and check out the amazing cards from the Design Team and are guest Lynda and play along! Remember the topping is optional, any type of Birthday card will do.

Happy crafting, Nanc’
