Sunflower Happy Birthday



Well we are off to a new week!!! Hope yours is a happy one!!!

I was able to get a little time in my craft room this weekend. I'd like to share one of the cards I was able to finish. This is a birthday card for the challenge over at Seize The Birthday!


For my card I inked up a pretty stamp by Unity called Face The Sunshine. I paper pieced her dress and colored the rest of the image with my Copics. 


Supplies Used: card stock - white, green; patterned paper - baby girl baby's breath by Doodlebug; stamps - Face The Sunshine by Unity, sentiment sampler by Paper Smooches; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; Copic markers; corner punch - Martha Stewart; flower - my stash; sewing machine; Pop Dots.

This card is awesome. I love everything about it from the sweet little red haired girl figure to the way you used the sunflowers, the stitching and the colors. This charming creation says "Spring" in the nicest possible way. It is a GREAT JOB and a lovely way to wish a Happy Birthday.
