"Happy Birthday Cara"


I made this card for my demo's daughter for her birthday. She is turning 3. Orange is a color that I struggle with but I love love love this card. I found the paper at Michael's, the orange prima's and the grosgrain ribbon I won in blog candy and thought it would go nice with the paper, then to finish it off, I added orange stickles to the giraffe. I love this card. I wanted to make it special since it is for my demo's daughter. Y'all understand. I also seem to have trouble with pattern paper. But you will notice I have made a several cards lately with pattern paper. I think I am getting the hang of it. I really like how they are turning out.

Stamps: Happy Everything, Wild About You
Paper: Real Red, Only Orange, Whisper White, Non SU DP
Ink: Only Orange, Summer Sun
Accessories: Stickles, Prima's with brad center, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Cream Grosgrain Ribbon, Tangerine Grosgrain Ribbon

This is darling!!! I'm not a big BB fan but I LOVE this card and will be saving it to my favs for a future case. Your blog candy flowers are the perfect touch to this very sweet birthday card!
