Birthday Card ~ A Little Spring

My crafting mojo took a little vacation yesterday.
Seriously I had the day off and planned on crafting 
during a lot of it but nothing I created turned out.
Everything I colored up looked like a pre-schooler did it. lol.

Today I stamped up this sweet Unity flower and gave it a little color.
Next I framed it up with green and yellow.
Then I added a little embossed texture.
To finish up I added the sentiment to the strip.
Thank goodness for sketches to help with a little mojo boost.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Flower and sentiment from the All Kinds of Happy stamp set from Unity Stamps.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder from Provo Craft.
*Y15, G14 and C1 markers from Copic.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love.
