On a Daffy March!



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.

On to the details of my card:  We want to see your Birth Flowers
