Tweet Tweet Sings The Birdie

It's a cold and damp Saturday morning here in Michigan...
so what is a girl to do but stay put in her creative!!

I made this card for the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs this week which is 
"Bling It Up"
I love the colors of this just screams "Spring", doesn't it??
My entire card was made around the flowers I made.....
because it's my hubby's birthday, I am doing a quick post and will list all products
used below...but I did want to mention the paper I used for my flowers is SU....
and I think it is called Watercolors" or something like that....
I thought it made the prettiest flowers!!

Gardenia Strip, Olive Branches, Wreath Strip, French Pastry Doily, Border Carnivale
and Quills and Ink Pot...though I just used the quills
Papers used:
Image is from Crafty Secrets

Okay, gotta run!!!!

Have mercy! There you go with those pretty flowers again, and these are exceptional! I would not have guessed it was the paper that gave them the amazing color. I figured it was your Pan Pastels which you've done such gorgeous work with before. This card is really beyond beautiful. I'm so glad it's for your hubby because it needs to stay home with you and be displayed like a work of art. Totally breathtaking!!
