I mentioned in my post last night that today is my daughter's birthday. We had a fun day just my daughter, my son, and I. We walked to the bakery and got a treat after picking my son up from kindergarten. Then, we had a picnic outside for lunch, played some games, and had ice cream with candles for dessert. My husband is still working away from home so he couldn't be here, but he called the flower shop and had them deliver flowers and balloons (she LOVES balloons!). Her party will be this weekend, but we had to make her birthday special, too.
So, I thought I would share the birthday card that I made for her. I used this adorable Teddy and Me image from the new Stampavie spring/summer release. Isn't she so cute?! The image reminds me of my daughter except my daughter would be packing around a pink bunny instead of a teddy bear.
While creating her card, I played along with the latest Stampavie challenge. The challenge is a recipe challenge (5 flowers, 2 different ribbons, at least one punch/die cut, and anything pink or blue). I used Amy Rysavy's sketch from her Friday Sketch challenge for the layout of my card. I paired my image with some Just Dreamy 2 patterned papers from My Mind's Eye and colored my image with coordinating copic markers. The sentiment is from my Butterfly Dreams stamp set. Lots of stitching, some crocheted lace, dark chocolate satin ribbon, and Prima roses finish off my card.
And I had to include a close up of this adorable image just because she is so cute!
Hope you're having a great week!
