Summertime Birthday



Hello and a happy Thursday to you! Today I have a simple card that was made with snippets of cardstock and designer paper along with a pre-colored digital image I had in my stash. I die-cut the image panel and a red mat with Lil Inker stitched rectangles for a simple design, adding a piece of floral paper along with the paper that looks like worn painted boards. The sentiment is by Northwoods.

I'm sharing this with the Dies R Us challenge #99 - Summertime Fun (and must use dies)

Also sharing with Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge for June 2018 - must use patterned paper

Thanks for stopping by and a very happy first day of summer to those who are experiencing it today!

Look at those super cute tweeters. I love the color of them. So glad you got to use more from your stash. The stitched rectangles work so well with everything. It is amazing.

This trio of cutie birds made me smile, and it's been THAT kind of day, so having this darling card to enjoy was very welcome. Love how you've done the cheery colors and the combo of the tiny floral DP with the wooden look on the opposite side. Very effective . Great card, and thanks for the heads up on Darnell's instructions. I'd tried that same thing before (it didn't work) but I think THIS time it has. Must be that Darnell is a lucky charm. (Not positive it's working but I THINK it is!) Happy wkend, and Hugs.
