Birthday flowers

Well I'm back to work ... and still going through my emails!  I'll be lucky to get them all sorted by the end of the week!  Ah well, it's much better than being at home with the flu!

Just a wee quickie card tonight while I was making some vegetable soup for my lunch.
I've used this lovely Prima stamp - coloured with watercolour pencils and sparkle added to the longer purple blooms.
I've stacked up my 'birthday' die to give it a bit of dimension.
I hadn't quite intended to have as many enamel dots, but those dirty fingers made an appearance again ;)


  1. Pretty card! The soft colors you used to water color are lovely. I always have trouble with inky fingers, too. I finally got a Tombow sanding eraser which helps to get rid of some of them.

  2. Such a lovely card, our colouring is so pretty, Jo x

  3. Beautiful friend! I love the blue in your card!! so fresh and springy which is the ONLY spring in our lives these days! LOL

    So glad to hear you are back on your feet!
