St. Patrick's day is also the anniversary date of my friend's Danielle and Tony. They have been married for eight wonderful years this year, and I know they will have many more happy years to come! I couldn't let their special day get away from me without sending them a card.
For this card, I started by stamping the heart of flowers on white paper. I then chose the pattern paper I wanted to use, and colored the flowers using Copic markers that closely matched the colors in the pattern paper. Although you can't see it in the picture, I added some glitter to the flowers using a Copic glitter pen. I punched out a scallop circle using some coordinating pattern paper. I adhered all the pieces to the card base, and tied some ribbon around the card for the final touch. This card design could be used for any kind of Spring-like card! I just love it!
