Birthday Flowers

Hello friends - I hope you have had or are still having a relaxing weekend.  I actually created this post last night but when I hit publish it disappeared - argghhh #firstworldproblems!  I was able to enjoy some time in The Studio doing something that I love - colouring - it is one of my favourite things to do - I won my first colouring competition at 10 years old- loved it then and love it now!!

The Penny Black Inc. Butterfly Suite image has been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.  It has then been cut/embossed using a Spellbinders Die (now retired) and popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  

and coloured using Memento Markers and an Aqua Brush.

The sentiment is computer generated and has been popped up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  

Finishing off with a button, twine and a bow. Nice and easy and such a pretty image - don't you think!?
