You Make Me Smile – by Holly McMillen

Published by at 7 00 am under General Purpose Cards,Kaiser

This one is for all of you bird lovers out there – or flower lovers! It’s got to be springtime somewhere, right? And with the mild winter we are having here in the midwest, it actually does feel far more like spring than December on many days – and that’s a god thing! Holly created a gorgeous card using a simple layout and a simple bird image that she colored, but then she went into overload when it came to applying flowers. And OH MY, what a stunning result! I’ll just let you take a look for yourself:


YUP, this one got me at hello!

On top of that lovely bird image and flower cluster, that color combination of soft teals, browns and white is just SPECTACULAR!
