Happy Birthday

Linda Carson
     Hello again!  I had a lady ask me to make a birthday card for her niece.  She wanted her name on the card and to use purple.  She also said the girl would turn 15. 
     I started with background paper that looks like fireworks exploding in celebration.  I believe it is Basic Grey.  I've had the paper forever.  The cake and balloons are pretty cool for a teenager.  They are by Taylored Expressions.  I was disappointed how the 3d Ranger paint looks on the bottom of the cake.  Guess I need to practice using it.
     The name worked out perfectly.  The letters are by Justrite stamps and pennant die by ODBD.  Finishing touches include glitter, pop dots, rhinestones and sequins.
     My customer loved it.  I just hope Hazel does too!
     Thanks for visiting!

  2. This is so fun and fabulous I had to dive right in and take a closer look! LOVE the cake, and the purple 3D paint looks just like frosting. I have that paper, too -- two pads accidentally, so I'll have it for a while yet. It's perfect for your birthday card. Love the banner, too. I have no doubt your customer loved it, and I know Hazel will, too!

  4. Oh I am sure Hazel is going to love this, such a great design, pretty color combo and who doesn't like a card that is personalized just for them with name and age!!
