Bloomin' Beautiful Birthday

I spent most of today and yesterday working on individual pieces for an upcoming craft show, which I am participating in with my mother-in-law and sister-in-laws. When I hopped into bed last Mitch was joking about my evening of "coloring". I guess I was coloring, but when he said that I was thinking, "It's not like I grabbed my son's Crayola Wonder Color markers and started coloring Winnie the Pooh pictures." lol. I think this takes a bit more skill and finesse. Maybe not... ;)

This card happened completely out of the blue. I had stamped and colored several of these floral images and while trying to come up with simple sketches for the show this more complex design jumped into my head. Most of the cards I make to sell are not as developed as many I upload here, unless requested. Too much planning and time to sell for a couple dollars. Most people are not willing to pay for the materials and time that goes into something like this. Crafters and artists know what I mean. ;)

I guess this will be my birthday card to myself!

Thanks for stopping!!
