Flowers for a Special Lady

Good Monday Morning!  

For today's card I'm sharing the Happy Birthday wishes I sent to Sabrina!  (aka 'Cousin Sabrina' to my husband)

The January Flower is the Carnation which is a symbol of devotion, love and loyalty.  This flower is the only flower that continues to thrive from summer right into winter. 

I selected the image from a free online coloring page and sized it to fit my card front.  Then I added the Happy Birthday greetings before printing.  

The flowers are colored with Copic Markers R81, R83, R85 and for the stems I used G40, G43, G46.

The decorative edging was done by using Gina Marie Designs Label Six Rectangles.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
