The end of October nearly! My girl turned 20 and the boy is 15 this year! Ugh! Did I jut admit that? Happy Birthday to both of them and today's card resembles the occasion.
Like I've said for the better part of October, I couldn't wait to get back into the mojo of making several cards a week with every theme possible. The process keeps my creative juices flowing and without it I struggle so much more!
Today I'm getting back into the challenge swing with Sentimental Sundays. We have a fabulous sponsor this week at Heart Song Designs and we want you to take and make something inspiring from your birth flower! Did you know you had a birth flower? Well, my birthday is in March and it turns out the Daffodil is for me. So I've taken some inspiration that I first found in a tutorial on ScrapBitz blog. I don't color flowers often and I wanted to give it a go. With the Copic alone I couldn't seem to get the shading I wanted but then I added some Distress ink and liked the outcome much more.
There are always some free sentiments offered at Sentimental Sundays challenge sight and this week is Janne's choice so I hope you enjoy them and play this week with us all. Be sure to stop in and say Hi to the DT as well.
