Catered Crop ~ Happy Birthday

A happy Friday to you! I'm honored to be guest designing at the Catered Crop! My entry for their {Heart of the Matter Recipe Swap} was chosen a winner, the prize was to be their guest for the upcoming challenge. This week you are asked to create a card for {Good Birthdays}, easy huh! We all need to keep birthday cards in our stash.

When I think of good birthdays I think of being a little girl, getting dressed in a pretty party outfit, filling out invitations for friends and feeling like a princess for the day!



These little girls in their sweet summery outfits were perfect for this card. I kept my design simple to let as many of them show as possible. Aren't they cute! A doily die cut to hold the sentiment and a layered bloom seemed to be all it needed. But then I received my Pretty Pink Posh Shop package with this cute Honeydew twine and Aquamarine cupped sequins. The colors were a perfect match so on the card they went!

I would also like to invite you to join me at the Craft Storage Ideas blog today for my {All About the Furniture} post!

That does it for me. I hope you'll play along at the Catered Crop. Be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, March 1. Who knows, you could be their next guest designer!! I'll be back tomorrow with something special for a special friend!! See you then ~Lisa

Beautiful job on this! Yellow really makes me run the other way, but I absolutely love how you've worked with these pretty colors. The background DP is adorable, especially with that sweet flower ensemble. I loved reading your thoughts, too. ;-)
