Oh happy day for my friend Erica! It’s her daughters fourth birthday!!
I have been really trying to stay on top of things with birthdays – it’s hard – even with my trusty Dutch Birthday Calendar. I think I might be ahead of the game this month. We’ll see.
I decided to create a card for Isabel. I wanted it to be simple, she’s only four. And, she is a girly girl. So, I decided to use a sketch from Just Add Ink. See –
And, then I went with a simple color challenge from Can You Case It. Here are the colors –
These are fun, including two new in-colors as well! I thought I could put a girly spin on them.
This is how I joined the two –
Nice, huh? Really quite simple. Cards don’t always have to be fussy to be eye-catching.
Since the focal point of the circle and the flag appeared to be off the card, I decided to trim the from panel to have my items ‘off’ the front. You can see that when the card is slightly opened here –
The candles needed a little something. I thought embossing was just the right touch. This really simple sentiment was fun too!
I sure hope little Miss Isabel has a fabulous birthday. She is a real sweetheart – takes after her mother.
