PPA 196, Birthday Card

My trees are in bloom already and it's starting to look like spring in the desert. I have to say, this might now have been the place I'd have chosen to spend the later years of my life, but in the spring it is just gorgeous.

So, I put a little spring in my card for the Pals Paper Arts challenge. If you would like to join in just click the PPA link in my right side bar, you will see many more cards based on this sketch.

I'm using So Saffron, I think it's my favorite yellow, so soft with a hint of gold. I also used Perfect Plum,  Old Olive and a touch of Tangerine tango.

Love, love, love this Hardwood background stamp, it just works so well for so many things, here it's the fence for the flowers to grow against.
The sentiment is from See Ya Later, if you like this set now is the time to get it, it's one of the free sets with a $50 order from any current product. This special ends the last day of March so time is getting short.

I added Candy dots to hold down my greeting and used the Bitty Butterfly for accent with rhinestones for bling.

To purchase any of these items, or just to look around or get more info, just click on one of the photos below.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I sure would love to hear what you have to say about my card.
