Today is the first day of spring and we are celebrating with gusto over at PaperWings, an online resource for demonstrators for The Angel Company, with a Blog Hop. The theme: Spring (of course)! You will find lots of spring themed cards from the blog participants - you'll find the links at the end of the post.
The stamp set I used is Frogs and Kisses along with Mia's Cottage paper collection. I just love these frogs and balloons - they are so cheerful, uplifting, and so spring!! The images are colored with my trusty Copics. Then I used a glitter pen for highlights on the balloon and frog. The edges of the image have been distressed with Chartreuse Pallet ink. What a great birthday card this will make for someone special.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to drop by these blogs to see more Spring Inspirations!
