Happy Birthday, Lynn!
Saturday is Lynn's birthday. Lynn has a big job and a big family and as a result, she must have very little spare time. And yet she still uses her big talent to inspire and her big heart to encourage and support other crafters - she amazes me!
I started out CASing this card of Lynn's.
I love the layered flower and the clean simplicity of Lynn's card. And as I was working on my card, I remembered that I really admire a technique that Lynn often incorporates into her designs - she stamps tone on tone on die cuts.
I used Paper Smooches Botanicals 3 and matching dies to create my cut and stamped flower. For the layer underneath, I used the smallest of the Big Bloom dies. My sentiment is from Birthday Bash. My dp is from MFT and I used an MFT Pierced Square for my white panel. My flower centre is a sparkly Doodlebug enamel dot.
Happy Birthday, Lynn! Wishing you a wonderful day and an amazing year!
(on another note, I'm spending the weekend with my sister in Virginia. I've got cards posted, but my commenting will be very limited until Wednesday).
I'm also linking up to the Paper Smooches December Guest Designer Search.
