I made this cheerful birthday card because I was inspired by the Splitcoast Stampers weekly featured stamper Misti Oblander. A visit to her gallery will feature lots of flowers, some Crazy Birds and House Mouse cards...just to name a few.
Geraniums are a favorite flower for me because they are so low maintenance. I had a couple of digital geraniums to choose from. I found Beccy Muir digital images at her website Beccy's Place. I like the simplicity yet complexity of her hand drawn designs. It's hard to tell since I photograph under "white" light but these flowers and leaves are popping with intense bright color in "real life". I decided to make the vellum border and white emboss my word phrase because I needed to tone a little of my greens down. My digital camera just goes crazy when I photograph bright green. I colored with Copic markers and added highlights with a Berol Prisma color pencil.
