Happy Birthday JT!!


Hope you are all having a good Saturday so far.

I thought I would enter a challenge and wish my good friend and Craft Buddy JT a very Happy Birthday!! I would imagine right now she is running around doing stuff, as she is having a party - waaah I want to be there.

The other evening I was trawling through my stamps and I came across a really pretty tree - part of the Birdsong collection by Papermania.

I don't know why, but I thought that Color Throwdown might have some colours to help me bring it to life!

Guess what? They did..the colour scheme this week #278 is perfect for the tree and for Valentine's Day cards.

I coloured the tree using Promarkers and used a mix of the Pistachio, Pink and Red to colour the flowers and the birds. I used the Crumb Cake for the tree itself.

Originally I just had the green strip of paper between the sentiment and the image, but it felt flat and then I saw a scrap of pink ribbon on my desk...throw in a Candi and voila! Perfect!

This little beauty is going on the pile for my work VDay card sale on Monday!

Have a superb weekend everyone.
