To Someone Special

Happy Saturday!  The Sisterhood of Crafters is having a challenge right now where you can't use any design paper.  I thought that sounded like fun to try to make my own so here's a card I made using this challenge as the jumping point.

I started by stamping some small flowers on the background from corner to corner, on my card base.  I then did a little sponging to add some color to the center of the card and added some ink splats.  This fabulous frame is from Impression Obsession, and I just love it!!  You can layer it up and give it endless options of dimension, so I'm also adding this card to  Seize The Birthday, since their challenge is "dimension".  I added the flower branch and goldfinch from PTI's Spring Woods stamp set.   

I'll also be adding this card to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a great weekend!
 Blessings~ Birgit

  13. Such a sweet card with lovely die-cut frame. We are blessed that you linked with our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and inviting you to join us again in our current challenge. Leaving you with the encouragement from God's Word in Romans 15:5-6 which tells us, "May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." Have a great Memorial Day weekend.

    Blessings,
