Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!



Hello, Today over at Seize the Birthday, JoAnn is our lovely hostess and she has chosen pastels as our topping. As I am typing this post I realize that I might have screwed up a bit as my sentiment is not quite in the pastel family! However the rest of the card is, so hopefully all will be forgiven.

Card Details: I started off with some watercolored paper and the smooshing technique for my background. All the various types of foliage are from Stampin Up. Some are inked card-stock, regular card-stock, or some were cut out from the leftover piece of watercolored paper from the background. The scalloped rectangle is MFT and the greeting is from Taylored Expressions.

I appreciate you stopping by today! I hope you will head on over to Seize the Birthday and see what my fabulous Design Team did with our topping! They are sure to inspire you!

Take care, Nanc’
