Springtime birthday

I couldn't wait to break out this new Kioshi paper from Basic Grey. It's absolutely gorgeous!!! And, since Spring is really just around the corner (I have proof: daffodils and crocus are blooming and tulips are up) I thought I'd use one of my neglected Lockhart stamps and this pot of tulips is just the thing!

I stamped the image three times on MFT's Perfect Paper Panels with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them all with Copic markers and cut out the pot and flowers for the second layer and just the flowers for the top layer. The two top layers are each popped up on Pop Dots. I'm using Taylor's fabulous TESC #104 for this week for my layout, which is another chance to use one of those big ol' buttons :) The sentiment is from PTI's Floral Fusion--the Summer CHA set.

Thanks for dropping in today! I'll have a new Stamp Simply card for you tomorrow so I hope to see you back then!
