Beautiful - March Prima PPP / Birthday Card

Hi Everyone

It has been quite a hectic week, but thankfully today is another public holiday, Good Friday, and it's a beautiful day in Africa!

Today is also my sisters birthday and so today we will spend time with the family and enjoy each others company!

So to start with, here is a card I made for her.

I used My Mind's Eye Indie Chic papers and a Scrap FX chippie, which I painted and crackled, with some crackle medium.

Then I also finished my entry for the March Prima PPP, which is all about the various shades of greens and teals.  Now admittedly, I do not have a lot of green Prima I went with the Prima Sparkling Spring collection and a few bits from the Nature Garden Collection.

Here is my page.

I did quite a bit of fussy cutting and then also used a beautiful Design Worx frame, with some die-cute pieces and Prima flowers. I also kept my gesso wall on the background white.

Here are some close-ups.

I wanted to keep the layout crisp and clean and so went with white, as well as the different shades or greens and teals.

Okay, well whatever you are doing today, I hope you have a super day.  If you are celebrating Easter or Passover, happy blessings to you and your families!

Have a super day!
