60 is the new 40 with flora fauna

Created this fun card for DH's friend who lives in the boonies in Sweden. DH and DS have been up there to visit. As "romantic" as it sounds, the bugs would do me in by the end of day one. Thought Flora and Fauna stamps would be appropriate...

Flora Fauna Happy Place stamp
Flora Fauna Graphic Flower stamp
Flora Fauna Holiday Terrarium stamp
Copics

A little bit of masking. A lot of strategically-placed stamping. Some basic Copic coloring. Voila!

I'm playing at:
Always Fun Challenges - Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes (no optional Sequins for me!)
Watercooler Wednesday - Occasions
Addicted to Stamps and More - Happy Birthday
Paper Players - Celebration theme for their anniversary

Your strategic placing is fabulous! I loved our visit to Sweden. Was so welcoming, if a bit chilly... And if 60 is the new 40, what's the new 40?? 20?? I'm liking it!! xx

Looks like a lot of masking, Maria, but your strategically placed stamps form a great frame around the fun sentiment. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to Stamps and More.

Your card has a woodsy feel to it, and also whimsy. A really fun card and great masking skills! Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.
