Sorry to be running late with my projects post for this month. April is a VERY busy month in our family with lots of Birthdays to attend and of course, Easter, so my weekends get filled quickly. But enough of that! The first card is a birthday card using the Sweet Always Designer Paper(#112468) and it's co-ordinating colors in pumpkin pie, chocolate chip and regal rose. The sentiment outside and in uses the On Your Birthday stamp set(#111664) and features the 5 petal punch flower from the Polka Dot Punches sale-a-bration set that I know many of you selected last month! The layout for this card came from Splitcoaststampers weekly card sketch that you can see here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=427937.
The second card this month demonstrates the "spotlight" technique. For this one I chose to use basic black and whisper white cardstock with riding hood red as the accent. The textured background was created using an embossing folder and my fav toy - the Big Shot. The flower image is from the Bloomin' Beautiful stamp set (#111490) and the sentiment is from the Fresh Cuts set (#111634). I hope you enjoy them!
