Red Wheelbarrow Birthday Card
Well, another weekend bit the dust. Where do these days go! At least it's getting closer to Spring. And, I'm making it happen sooner with this wheelbarrow full of flowers. I chose to go with brighter colors rather then the Spring pastels. Mainly because I wanted to use this Red pre-colored Wheelbarrow from Fred She Said. They come in 8 different colors and since Red is one of my favorite colors, I just had to use it.
I don't know where my head is this weekend. I LOVE to play along with challenges and especially Sketch challenges. So, I started printing my images and planning my cards so I can sit and hand stitch them while I watch TV in the evening. Well, yesterday waqs my Granddaughter's 4th Birthday Party so that day was shot. AS I was making this card today, I just realized that I have three cards planned out and all three are from sketch challenges from Tuesday. So, that means that I have to finish and post all three cards in two days. Oh My!!!
This card was inspired by a sketch challenge from Anita Be Stampin.
The papers are from the Sweetheart Paper Pack from Close to my Heart. The color black was added to make the image POP.
I did the Hand Stitching with White Embroidery Floss to frame the whole card nicely.
The Happy Birthday is a Clear Stamp from the Birthday Card Chatter Set also from CTMH.
