Sunday Stamps Color Inspiration: Have an Amazing Birthday

The cheerful shades of spring green and soft neutrals shown in the Sunday Stamps Inspiration palette brought  out my new Spring Wreath Die from The Cat's Pajamas. The wreath and flowers were cut from watercolor paper and shaded with distress inks using a water brush.  I layered the focal panel over some pretty plaid to bring out a masculine look and finished it off with one of my favorite birthday sentiments from Verve.

This is such a wonderful birthday to celebrate.  A dear uncle will be eighty in a few days.  Not only is he greatly loved, but his health and well-being are an answer to fervent prayers through a lengthy illness a few years back.  We are grateful for more time to enjoy him on this side of Heaven.  Praying God's faithfulness in this instance will be a blessing to someone with needs.

Thanks so much for your visit,
