Signs of Spring

Today I have a single layer card I made using Theresa Momber's Signs of Spring.  I loved these leafy sprigs and thought it would be fun to create a single layer scene on Pure Luxury White base, connecting the greeting with the branches in the middle.
Start by stamping the greeting to have it centered, and then add your branch just touching the top and bottom the sentiment on either side.  The clear stamps make this easy. :)  Stamp your butterflies above in Black Onyx and color with Copics.  Add a bit of sparkle with colored glitter pens.  Finally, sponge some Ocean Mist and Turquoise Sea randomly, leaving white space, to make a cloudy background. I used a Nestabilities die to emboss a shape to frame the scene and add a "layer".

Don't they seem to be saying, "Oh hello, how are you?" :)

Gorgeous. I love the way the branch seems to be writing Happy Birthday. Love the embossed edge.
