Happy Happy Birthday

Hello!

I've found some time to post a card I made last weekend for my friend's daughter who turned 1.  I wanted it to be fun and girly and I think I got it right...


Oh it felt really good to finish this one.  I've been in a funk lately, mostly because work has been unreal crazy!  Long hours, getting home late then getting up to do it all over again.  I'm lucky if I get to color anything lately, let alone complete a card, so having Mila's birthday card to finish felt like a really awesome accomplishment.  hehehe...  I was at Joann's a couple weekends ago and I picked up a set of Project Life Becky Higgins cards for fun.  I loved the patterns and thought they would come in handy for a quick card.  I was right!  The floral and banner print are from the LOVE collection.  Love the vintage feel to this set with it's fun color palette.  The white reverse scallop frame is a die from Lifestyle Crafts QuikKutz called Packet Scrap Dies - Hooray.  This set is made for the PL cards, so happy it fit right around the banner card.


I used Jilly's candle from Sweet November.  I loved coloring her up and adding her on to the front.  She fit perfectly with the birthday decor.  I also added an Island Scrapbooking laser cut sentiment colored with Copics and then used my WOS glitter pen to add some sparkle.  At the top of the card I used a LLC banner and hand-wrote "Happy" inside.  Here's a close-up of Jilly.  I think she is adorable and look I gave her some shiney curly locks. hahaha.


Well not sure when I'll be back, but I hope you're all having a nice weekend.  Hopefully once work settles down I'll be back to posting and coming around to see what you've all been up to.  I'm going to try to do some visiting soon.  In the meantime, Mahalo for stopping by.  Take care and happy crafting!!

Wowee! That is a super happy and adorable card for a 1-year-old girl. I love her curls, the giant candle, and the colorful banners. I am so glad to see your crafty skills and hope to see more of it as your job gets less hectic. Mahalo!

Cuteness is all over this card! I miss using the sweet November stamps! The layering effect on the banner is an adorable idea!
