Spring Colors, Flowers, and a Birthday Celebration


My card is for Oozak's challenge #2 to make a card using spring colors, and also for the OWH Stars and Stamps mid-week throwdown to use flowers. I used PTI berry sorbet cardstock and white, embossing with a Swiss Dots ef, and layering with SB fleur de lis, squares, and scalloped squares. The image is from G Studio, colored with Copics and embellished with 3 tiny gemstones and some white satin ribbon.
I'm entering this birthday tag into the Simon Says Stamp blog 3rd birthday celebration. I made this tag for a boy celebrating a 2nd birthday, and even though the number isn't a 3, it's still for a birthday. I used the Cricut to cut the tag from cardstock that came in a "carnival" paper pad. I used a herringbone ef to add texture, along with some stars, a tag, and a frame (from the same carnival pad) for the pre-colored PS digi image. The sentiments were computer generated, and I added a white mini brad on the number tag, and finished this with various ribbons and fibers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

What a beautiful spring/flower card. Love that Fleurr De Lis die. The berry sorbet and white look so pretty together. I love that tag for the birthday challenge. The herringbone goes so well with the theme of the tag. Two great entries today, Carol, as usual from you. I so enjoy your creations. Have a marvelous day.

Your floral card is absolutely gorgeous! I love your idea to use the scallop square on top of the fleur de lis square. The ribbon sets it all off wonderfully. Into my CASE file it goes!

Love the tag too with the embossing and die cuts and of course, that cute image. Hope you win the challenge!

Love these colors, Carol! Beautiful
card and love the tag. It is just the cutest.
I bought a couple of star punches at Jo Ann Stores last night. It was a Fiskars, buy one and get one 1/2 price. I need some different sized stars. As I was buying them, I was thinking of you. You make the best cards with stars.
