Birthday Wishes

Happy Friday! I made this yesterday for the Ways to Use it challenge over at SCS. We were to pile up embellishments, so I layered my ribbon. The flowers are from A Year of Flowers, the leaves are from Autumn Leaves and the sentiment from Tag Lines.

I colored the flowers with my Copic markers and then cut them out.

I sponged the two background layers, using So Saffron for the first and Certainly Celery for the second. The card base is Apricot Appeal. I used oval nestabilities for the sentiment layers and sponged the top layer with Regal Rose ink.

Have a very happy weekend!

Not sure how I've managed it Theresa but I've missed your last couple of posts. Somehow your blog didn't come to the top of my list with the other two.

Never mind, it's ok now and I've caught up. Beautiful cards as always and your colouring is fabulous. I especially like the lastest card because the colours are right up my street. Absolutely gorgeous.

Love this card. Your colours are fabulous and great layout. It gives me some hope that spring will soon be upon us. I am one tired Canadian who is sick of this winter. It just does not want to end.
