Spring birthday

   March is full of female birthdays in my family. I thought that I would try something a little different and make a card without using any designer paper. I have had a stamp from Elusive Images (now known as Chocolate Baroque) for some time and never used it. It is from the daffodil script set. I used it to stamp daffodils randomly over white card and then coloured the images using Derwent Coloursoft pencils. I then attached two horizontal strips of shiny green stripes to the card.
   The main image is from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Designs spring set of stamps and is a favourite of mine. I used Promarkers to colour this and then dusted the edges with distress inks, matted it onto yellow gold mirri card and glittered the falling rain drops.
   The peel off sentiment  was adhered to green mirri card which was mattered onto yellow gold mirri card.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Oldie  but a Goodie - spring has sprung (old stamps)
   Fantastic Tuesday - anything goes
   Fantasy Stampers - spring colours
   The Pink Elephant - birthday
   Ribbon Girl - birthday
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
   Catch the Bug - anything goes
   Loves Rubber Stamps - anything goes
   Crafty Catz - anything goes
   Alllsorts - spring is coming
   House Mouse and Friends - anything goes
   Whoopsi Daisy - lots of flowers
   Passion For Promarkers - flowers
   Cute Card Thursday - springtime
   Sweet Stamps - spring flowers
   Lacy Sunshine - use spring colours
   Animal Friends - mouse
   I Love Promarkers - one for the girls
   Gruffies and Guests - fit for mum or special female
   Crafty Calendar - animal antics
