A Springtime Birthday Card!

Happy Spring and Happy Easter to my readers! I haven’t been working in my craft room as much as I would like lately but I have a card to share with everyone today!  My moms birthday was last month and I had to wait for her to receive her package before I could post this card.  Of course shipping times from Italy take forever so now that it finally has arrived, I can post the card!

I love this Sheltering Tree stamp set from Stampin’ Up! It reminds me a lot of one of their past stamp sets (and a highly sought after set which means I will never get rid of mine) called Branch Out.  This set can be used for making scenes from all four seasons.  For the background paper, I used the Irresistibility Yours Designer Paper from the 2015 Sale-A-Bration catalog.  It is originally white with an embossed fan design and I sponged the background to give it the teal color using Bermuda Bay ink. 
This is a two step stamp set meaning you stamp one image first and another over top which is a great way to combine colors.  I hope that everyone has a wonderful Easter and gets to spend time with family and friends!
