Spring-like Happy Birthday...

I'm really getting anxious for Spring to arrive, but since it's still rather cold and snowy outside, I decided to create some Spring in a birthday card.

This card was created using a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store.

I love this funky flower that was part of the card file. I inked the edges of the petals and leaves to give them a bit more dimension.

I added the butterflies using a small Fiskars punch.

The stamp is an old one - not sure of the manufacturer.

On the inside of my card, I added a white mat and stamped my sentient from a Fiskars clear stamp set. A couple more butterflies finished off my card.

I really love the Silhouette card files, as they are usually complete - they cut everything out for you and you simply have to assemble and embellish as desired.

This card is for a friend, and I think it will bring a smile to her face. I think she's going to like the fun shape, brightly colored paper and funky flower!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

What a pretty card, Cheryl, and I love the sentiment! How true :-)

I'm ready for spring, too. In in Albuquerque with our son and his family, helping out - they have a new baby! However, at home, they're calling for up to eight inches of snow! Ugh...

Have a good week - thanks for sharing!

This is a beautiful card Cheryl! Yes it just shouts Spring!
As much as you are looking forward to Spring, I just want to hold on to Winter ... for a couple of months... or years!!!
Winter here is the most amazing season. You can breathe, and be outside, the sky is blue, oh I could carry on for ever!
