Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
Spring is definitely creeping up on us and that makes me think of new life. New life often means first time moms and birthdays -- and no 'birth'day is more important than the actual day you were born. Each one after that is just a celebration on the anniversary of your birth, right? So, today's card is dedicated to spring, new life, new moms, and milestone birthdays. Yes, I'm celebrating mine today, too, even though it's not a milestone. :-D
The image comes from Aurora Wings and is called "Dragon Babies." Aurora Wings has a fantastic FB page which you should visit for some wonderful inspiration.
I chose to use the sketch from Sketch Saturday.
The image is colored with ProMarkers, then die cut. The mat is die cut from dp by K & Co. and the background dp is also K & Co. The ribbon is grosgrain and was in my stash. The bow is one of those I make by the dozens. The glittery border is actually made using "Design Adhesives" diamonds and green glitter. I'm still experimenting with various gitter and adhesive techniques. I really like this one!
