You know how to make me smile! Give me a beautiful image to color, some time to myself and card making supplies! I am a happy girl! Today I made this card using up more awesome scraps from my scrap box, and playing with a few die punches. I have been trying to be more creative with backgrounds in my images. On this design I used a flower die punch, and some distressed ink to give the illusion of flowers in the foreground, then with what I call the speckle technique I added in some grass, hand drawn in some clouds and speckled some shades of blue for the sky, topped it off with a flock of birds in the distance. I look forward to mailing her off to someone special!
