Springy Happy Birthday with Vanessa

Hello everybody! Vanessa here with some pretty spring flowers to brighten your day! I've been impatiently checking on the progress of the flower buds in my garden patches every day, but it'll still take a while for them to bloom, so I made my own spring bouquet on a card. 

I've been wanting to try coloring on patterned paper, so I chose this subtle patterned Kraft colored paper and trimmed it slightly smaller than my white card base. Now I stamped the flowers and the leaves from In Bloom: Addie's Garden, always masking the previously stamped image before stamping the next. After I had colored the bouquet with Faber Castell Polychromos, I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs and adhered the panel to my card base. Finally, I added sparkling clear sequins.

I hope you enjoyed today's card inspiration! Thank you so much for stopping by!
