Wildflower Birthday Card

We have a new challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown and this week we are sponsored by 
Our theme is "Your Favorite Embellishment".  

I've used an image from our sponsor, "Spring Bouquet" and "Ruffled Wild Orchid Sentiment" to make this card:

It's colored with Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils, cut out with a Sizzix die and both are mounted on a Cricut scalloped circle cut. 
I'm not sure I can say this card has just one favorite embellishment.  I love to use die cuts, sheer ribbon (especially tied in a double bow) and gems.  I also love to ink around the edges of my cards!  If I do have to choose just one fave, I guess it would have to be the.....well...I just can't decide!   LOL!  I do love using my Cricut, though!

Come on over and join us!

"Owl" Love You Forever

Hi!!!  It's a beautiful February day as I'm typing this and I hope you are enjoying the weather wherever you are.  I have just a slight touch of Spring Fever, but I know it's too soon to work in my flower garden so I'm not suffering too much yet.  Wait until March!  Boy then I'll be wanting to get started and that's still too soon!

It's Tuesday, so we have a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  I love this theme --- "Heart Strings - show hearts and string/twine".  Our sponsor is the wonderful 
 http://www.mygrafico.com/digital-stamps/cat_95.html and I had the privilege of picking out the digital set we got to work with this week.  I used "Love Owls" from the set to make my valentine.

I love how it turned out...just my own opinion!  :)

The background paper and the beaded swirls are both from The Paper Studio.  I cut the swirl in half and kind of reshaped it to fit my design.  The dotted ribbon is from American Crafts.  The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out with a Spellbinders die, then mounted on a scalloped circle Cricut cut.  The heart doilie was the finishing touch I felt the card needed.  I played around for quite some time placing things before I decided on that!  

Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you'll join us this week!
