A Beautiful Day

Things are finally looking up around here so yes, it's a beautiful day!  This is actually a birthday card for one of the older granddaughters.  I used Spring Blocks from Deedee's Digis - (Pre-colored version).  There's five different images and a slew of sentiments in this set - and they come in pre-colored or line.    Be sure and check it out!  I went over the blue background with a little darker blue Copic and then added the Wink of Stella to the flower petals and wings of the bee.  A few sequins were added along with some sheer ribbon. 

I know it's Friday and I don't have a Fun Friday for everyone......but I will have one next week for sure!  (Or at least try to have one - for sure!)

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and go over to Deedee's and see all the wonderful images.  There's also a progressive challenge going on there each month!

This set from Deedee's is one of my favorites, Lynn, and I love your tent card design! The blues are great and the sheer ribbon really works. You certainly haven't lost your touch over the weeks of little or no crafting. Glad to hear things are settling back toward normal for you and Jim. :-D

It is lovely and charming and am sure your grand daughter loved it. Must have been hard for you to make a flower card but whenever you do make them, they are crisp and fresh and BEAUTIFUL.
