It's 5 o'clock somewhere

Finally - the last of the snow has gone from the garden and today we have - sunshine!!!
I don't want to jinx it, but I think Spring may have arrived.

It got me in the mood for some pretty, spring colours.
For my card I followed the sketch at Seize the Birrthday - just changing the oval (I'm allergiK to ovals)  
to a photo frame.


I know it's hard to make out the frame in the picture, but it's there. 
I printed out my sentiment and used a rectangle nestie for the opening, then cut the frame like a polaroid.
I'm sure somebody makes a die for this, but this way you can make your frame any size you like.

Seize the Birthday - Sketch and feminine birthday
Totally Papercrafts - Birthday girl in pink. One of my birthday girls is in pink, hope that counts :-)
