Secret Garden Birthday

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had such a beautiful spring like day here in Pittsburgh.

Temps were in the upper 60's with lots of sunshine. It felt so good to be out in the warm weather even if it is only for a day. More snow is coming tomorrow and possibly another ice storm. Oh well, time to laugh in the face of old man winter 'cause spring is right around the corner (lol)!!

Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the Featured Stamper #370 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The honors this week went to Mynette. 

I was on the Great impressions Design Team with her for awhile so I wanted to make a card in her honor today. I chose her white embossed blooms to remake aka Mary Marsh style.

My flowers are from the Stampin-Up "secret garden" set and I used real red and daffodil delight for my flower colors. Stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The flowers and leaves are cut with the matching frame lit dies.

Instead of an embossed panel I used designer paper from the Stampin-Up  "gingham garden" collection. I added some pear pizzazz ribbon to join the 2 panels.

My birthday word is cut with a PTI die. My card colors are from this week's CTD #282.

That's my card for today. It's late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.
