IB58 - Happy Birthday


I was lucky enough to go away this past weekend with some of the best crafty friends in the world! Tracey, Natasha, Stephanie, Marcie (who I met in real life for the first time) and my daughter Kate and I booked a weekend retreat at a little place in Ontario. We had a ton of fun (and even more food!!) and we actually were pretty productive, too!

This is one of the cards I made over the weekend. It's for this week's Inspired by All the Little Things challenge:




I focused on the white flowers and the yellow/orange/pink bottles.

I painted my watercolour panel and then simply added die cuts and a small stamped sentiment.  These bold colours are so happy and energetic!

I used:
-Papertrey Beautiful Blooms II dies
-Winnie & Walter Happy die
