A Scenic Birthday

Hello Everyone and Happy Sunday!

I had a little time last evening to 'play' and while I was jumping
around on Pinterest, I spotted a card my friend Diane (Nellie's Nest) had pinned 
that was created by Birgit and thought I'd like to give it a try.  

Here's Birgit's card ....

Spellbinders D-Lites Die

And here's mine ...

 I just love drawing inspiration from other designers!
Sometimes when I see someone's card I think ... "WOW!  Why didn't I think of that?"
Do you ever do that?  LOL

Anyways, I'm in need of more masculine birthday & get well cards for
my upcoming shows so I think I'll make a few more using this basic design idea
but with different colors and die cuts.  Thanks Diane & Birgit for your inspiration!

Gosh, this is sure pretty, Darlene! It's perfect for a masculine birthday, but it's just beautiful in my eyes, so peaceful and serene, and it would suit me just fine to receive this in the mail. Kinda my style, tell the truth. Couldn't tell by some of the cards I make, I guess.

For my main card, the die, etc. are identified after my signature. If there is something you are inquiring about on one of the last 3 cards please let me know.
