Birthday Forget-Me-Nots

Happy Friday Friends!
Here we are on the brink of another weekend and another week closer to Spring!
YAY!!!
I'm a bit weary from all the cold and snow this month so I thought I'd create 
with a 'happier', more colorful image in mind.

I chose one of the pretty images from the Crafty Secrets 'Victorian Floral Easter Egg' digital pages for today's card creation.  I 'thought' these flowers were 'Forget-Me-Nots', so before mis-identifying them, I did a Google search and yes in deed they are and aren't they just beautiful! 


 I fussy cut the image from the page using my Fiskars swivel craft knife (love that thing!), distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz distressing tool then adhered it to a white card stock panel and proceeded to fussy cut my mat and distress it as well.
I kept my design pretty simple since I wanted all the focus to be on this pretty image.
If you noticed, on the sheet there are also SMALLER copies of some of the images and here I've used the coordinating image for the inside of my card.  Just adds a special little 'something'!

Sorry to say the Crafty Secrets February Challenge (Linky Party) is over but please be sure to come join us the 1st Monday in March (and 1st Monday of every month) for a new challenge.

  1. Gorgeous card...wow, those forget me nots are such a beautiful site to see on your card, I used to grow them here, but I think over the years I pulled them out by mistake as weeds...you have inspired me to grow them again with your beautiful card!!
