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

Happy Birthday


Hello, It is Monday and I am back with a card I made with two challenges in mind. The first is the pretty Spring Colors over at Sunday Stamps. I fell in love with their graphic as soon as I saw it plus all the cards by the DT and in particular- Stef Perrys. I incorporated every color from the graphic on my card.

I decided to pair it with a Sketch, and that sent me right away over to Freshly Made Sketches. I took some creative liberties with this Sketch and hope that you can see my correlation with my garden pots and tools and the vertical stripes.

Card Details: This die set is called Garden Shed and is from Sizzix. The lattice in the background is from Whimsy Stamps and I cut it down and pieced it back together so the edges were the same. You can see a definite line at the bottom but that is okay. I used mirrored paper for my garden tools and plant basket/shelf. The greeting is from Your Next Stamp.

You will be seeing this set again that is for sure.

I hope you have a wonderful day and week ahead and find some time to be creative, Nanc’
