On Your Special Day, FMS244 & CC49


Hi friends, and TGIF! It is supposed to be a beautiful weekend for this time of year here in the northeast, and I hope to be able to spend a little of it out of doors. Thankfully nearly all the snow has melted, and I'm anxious to get back on my favorite trail at the nature preserve. 

I've taken a break from coloring today, and did some layered stamping with solid images. The florals and sentiment are from W Plus 9, and the vase from Clearly Besotted. I think they pair so perfectly and I've used them together several times before.


I'm yearning for the colors of spring, and fell in love with this bright, beautiful combination from The Card Concept. I'm also playing along with the sketch by Jen T at Freshly Made Sketches. I love that little bit of paper peeking out the right side!

Stamp Sets: Fresh Cut Florals (Wplus9), A Little Something (Clearly Besotted)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Bermuda Bay (Stampin' Up)
