Birthday Love:


Good morning all.  Here we are at Wednesday again, the LAST Wednesday of April.  Wow, where does the time go?  And where the heck is Spring?  I would do anything to see a bloom pop up from the ground.

This week's challenge at Papercraft Star is an inspiration photo:



I figured since I had ZERO time to make this card, then why not "go big or go home"!  Making this window card was very time consuming, but in the end, I am happy I took the time.



The simple inside:

Card Ingredients:  JustRite What Defines Us (Amazing Paper Grace) flourish stamp, A New Day (Amazing Paper Grace) sentiment stamp, and Circle of Life (Amazing Paper Grace) stamps, MME papers, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Recollections gems, Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap ink, Craftsmart Gold ink, Wild Orchard flowers.  Tools: sewing machine, Oval Nesties.

I made this card for the following challenges:  JustRite Friday Challenge - window card, Get Inky! - bling, Sunday Funday  - April Link Party, Sketchy Colors - sketch:
