This will be going to my great niece turning 10 this year!  Hopefully it is a style she likes.  I used card quotes from hot off the press and used chalk on them to bring some color and some inking around the edges of the die.

Here is a look at the inside, I usually hand write my sentiments inside but these card quotes have outside and inside quotes.

Hot off the press -- cardmakers birthday card quotes
Spellbinders -- A2 distressed edges, A2 matting basics B and Labels 29 dies
K&co. -- Color Basics radiant mat pack
Buttons -- Yard Sale
Me&my big ideas -- gems (button centers)

We are getting a lot of storms with some light flooding, but lovely warm temps to have the doors open, Love to hear the birds chirping and letting the fresh air in. Hope you are enjoying some good spring weather too!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

What a lovely card to receive! Such springy colors too.
We are having nice warn sunny days but a little on the breezy side. I'm not used to the wind like this. Our snow is melting quickly, we are ahead of ourselves this year, could be a very dry summer.
I too have had my windows open and listening to the chirping of the birds. Lovely!

Have a beautiful week end.
