Barrow of Birthday Wishes

I hope you’re having a beautiful Easter weekend friends!

I realize that it's really the wrong season for this design, but sometimes you’ve just got to go where the inspiration strikes.  I think this pretty image from Power Poppy Fall Haul Digital is so great with that wheelbarrow bursting with pumpkins and gourds.  Blue and orange make such a nice colour combo too - so I coloured the wheelbarrow with an aged blue look. I wanted to use some woodgrain designer paper, but the woodgrain was just a bit too yellow looking, so I took my W1 copic marker to  get the tone in the paper to more of a warm grey to match the sahara sand paper.  

That perfect sentiment is from Power Poppy’s polymer set Go Wild  I curved it a bit to make it work with the oval of the main image, added a couple enamel dots and some twine to match.

Vivid and beautiful! I love how you curved the sentiment and altered the wood grain paper. Clever and fun, Christine!

Christine, what a gorgeous card, and I love your coloring (of course) along with such a beautiful layout! Just love the oval shape with the scallops, and what beautiful DP. I also love the curved sentiment! Stunning. And praise God, Jesus is risen indeed! Had a beautiful Easter ourselves! Hugs and love! xoxo
