For a Spring Birthday

Here's another birthday card for March, using a new pad of pastel design papers, and one of my favorite Simon flower stamps.

Spring Birthday

supplies: Simon's Surf Blue, black, and woodgrain cardstock, their Artful Flowers clear stamp set, a Summer Garden leaf die with Hero Arts Grass layering paper, My Favorite Things Lucky Prints 6" paper pad, Signo white pen for flower centers, Hero Arts Happy stamp & cut die, Winnie & Walter Big Bold Happy "birthday" stamp, Simon Stitched Rectangle die, moonshine sequins

I was so pleased to see this pad of pretty pastel prints by My Favorite Things!  I used the heart print here, but there are actually 4 different prints in these 3 colors, plus a lovely spring green, too!

I am counting the hours until the final episode of Downton Abbey tonight!  Anyone else out there a fan?  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


  1. Very pretty arrangement of flower and I like the pretty printed paper you used!

  2. So pretty, Lin! Love those spring colors! We are suppose to be close to 60 degrees today - yay! ♥

  3. What pretty little flowers Lin, this is fabulous!! YES, I'm a Downton Abbey fan and am so sad to see it end!

  4. Beaytiful composition, Lin, The stitches part is so cool. At first I wondered how you did it, but after reading I saw... I;m also an addict to Downton Abbey, love all those costume dramaplays! And they all played so wel!! That old lady, she is marvellous!!Hugs, Mieke

  5. this is beautiful Lin - love the soft colours and the wonderful flowers!!

  6. Such pretty flowers. I'm a big fan of Downtown... loved the final episode.

  7. This looks very pretty against the white woodgrain background.
    And, I will miss Downton Abbey too.

  8. So pretty ... love the woodgrain EF BG!!

  9. Oh, Lin, I just love this card with these beautiful pastel DP flowers! Wow! I love the woodgrain card stock that I've already added to my "cart" at SSS. Thanks for the links to your products (it really helps!). And I LOVE Downton Abbey and am so sad it's over, but what a beautiful finale! Classy and tied up most of the ends. But who knows...I heart that Julian Fellowes is considering a prequel. But I would love to see more in the future...perhaps a generation from then. But what a wonderful series! Hugs, sweet friend!


Thank you so much for your kind comments - they make my day!
