Spring Birthday

My Great Niece will be turning 9, and since it has been such a cold and snowy winter I thought a nice spring card would be nice for her birthday.  I am sorry I don't know the name of this image, a cardmaker friend sent it to me a few years ago, and I finally got around to coloring her.


Magnolia stamped image, colored w/markers
Memory Box -- Picket fence die
Martha Stewart border punched, colored with markers
Fiskars -- cloud punch
Dazzles -- tiny words & phrases, I love how these stickers give the look that you embossed
K& co. -- background paper

Hope you all are having a great weekend, we finally have some sun today so that just gives me a great lift, hope it warms up too :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and sharing your comments,
Connie
