Fun Birthday Card

The challenge at Creative Belli Blog this week is to use texture. This challenge is right up my alley! I love adding texture to cards. The challenge over at Whimsy Stamps is to make a birthday project. I made this card earlier this week, and it is perfect for these challenges - here it is:



This is one of my favorite cards lately! I like all of these bright colors together.

I used a cuttlebug folder for the embossing on the bright pink cardstock. I crocheted the flower and finished it off with a button. The sentiment is stamped on a Nestabilities oval. My favorite part is the beaded trim which I got at Michaels on clearance.

My daughter's birthday is at the end of this month, and she has decided she wants me to give her this card - ha ha! That is the ultimate compliment!

Thanks for looking!
