Lotus Chilling on a Country Swing - Make It Crafty Digi's

Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace. 

Copic markers, Make it Crafty Lotus and Country Swing digis, Spellbinder frame die,
Impression Obsession butterfly and flower dies, gold leafing pen, Nuvo drips, fun foam for mounting

Hey there,

I created this birthday card for a darling friend in my card making tribe ages ao and I'm happy to be finally posting it.   My birthday card theme this year is "charming images situated in idyllic scenes".  These adorable Make it Crafty digi stamps are perfect for that purpose.   I seated cute little Lotus on a country swing in the middle of a sunny garden to show off her perky style.  I edged the panel with gold and mounted it with a fun foam square on a lacy Spellbinders frame.  My pink card base is 6" x 6."

The tiny butterfly and flower dies are from Impression Obsession and are perfect for small details in a scene.

It's a cool, wintry day in California today (55 degrees--brrrrrr), but creating in my craft room makes me feel like I'm in a sunny garden every day!

Thanks for visiting,
Go forth and create a sunny day in your craft space.
