Heart Leaf Birthday

I did up a quickie today using the beautiful leafy potted plant image from Gina K. Designs Made With Love Stamp TV Kit. I took some of the new ink colors that Gina K. Designs came out with called Blue Lagoon and Apple Mint and put some of the ink in each lid. Then I took a wet brush and mixed it with the ink and then painted the leaves. I finished the pot and shadow along the bottom with Spectrum Noir Aqua markers. The sentiment I added is also from Gina K. Designs and is from the Stamper's Favorites set which is illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.


I used Gina K. Designs Blue Lagoon, Apple Mint and White card stock along with some sort of rust colored card stock which I had in my stash. My tag was a die from Cheery Lynn Designs on which I put the potted plant image. I also used a die from Spellbinders for the edged designs. And, the final touch was to add a ribbon bow from American Crafts and some enamel dots which are from Stampin' Up! Oh, the inside was lined with a white sheet of paper so that I can add a sentiment inside.

This will be entered into the Mod Squad Blog Challenge for this week.

Well, that's all folks! Have a great weekend. Mine will be busy with family so that will be fun!

God bless,
Verna

I really like how you colored the leaves with those two colors. Very pretty card overall. I am probably done crafting for the weekend too, since it is a long weekend we have some extra things planned. Have a good one!

If this is a quickly, you have certainly mastered that. Love the bright colors in the new papers and those dies are beautiful and one of my favorites and I go to them often. The image is a fav of mine too. Unfortunately, I don't have it. Really like it on this card.

I may have to try a similar layout. This would make a great sketch challenge.
