Birthdays are the Best *SFYTT*

I am so glad March is here! Spring is on it's way!***FUN NEWS****Before I dive into deets about this month's sketch, I have some fun news! I am March's Limelight Designer over at Flourishes this month! You can check it out here! My first project will be shown tomorrow! Since it is the first Saturday of the month, you know what that means, a new SFYTT! I am in need of a few birthday cards, so I got to work using this month's sketch which is sponsored by Amber Ink.

Although I didn't use their images, you will definitely want to check them out. She has some really fun images!

For my card, I used PTI's "Blooming Button Bits"! This particular image is one of the main reasons I chose to buy this set, but I have never used it before! Go figure! I started the design by picking out my papers first! I chose to use some fabulous bright and cheery papers by K & Co. Once I knew what colors I would be using, I stamped the focal image using Spring Moss ink. I stamped the leaf image again, trimmed it out and adhered it using a pop-dot. I chose to use three different button colors to tie all of the papers together. Can you imagine a plant with buttons blooming all over it? I think I would plant several in my yard! LOL!
The sentiment was stamped onto a strip of paper and then added using foam squares. I decided that I needed a little bit more stamping on my card, so I used PTI's "Just the Ticket" to create a little tag to hang from the gingham bow. I stamped it directly onto a piece of pattern paper to keep it bright and cheery.

What a breath of fresh air this card is after a snowy day! My husband just happened to notice your last name...turns out 'Lunceford' is his grandma's maiden name. We may be distant relatives!
