Birthday Card and some Linky Parties

Antonella Sweet Stampin Challenge Make It Monday Birthday Card Mariannes Creatables

The weather can't decide what it wants to do these days, it is rainy, hot, cold, dry, you name it.

I made this birthday card for a co-worker whose birthday happened to fall on a business trip we took recently.  I'm glad I took a picture of it before our trip because it didn't travel well, it was a wee bit squished when we arrived - lol.

While I was contemplating what to make, I made my rounds around blog-land and decided to follow the sketch from this weeks Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog to inspire my card.

So what do you think of my interpretation of this sketch? To make it more fun, I decided to try some colors I don't use very often and added some fun dies and followed my inspiration muse. I added the Pink "ribbon"  to soften up the card.

I am participating in the following challenges:

I used my Marianne Designs - Creatables Die on this card because I hadn't used them before :-)

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Antonella, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog since it gives me a chance to come and visit you, too! Your card is absolutely beautiful! The colors are so vibrant that they made me smile...just the colors alone are wonderful. Then I looked and see this gorgeous butterfly, flowers and embossing. Wow! Your co-workers must have really been thrilled to receive this work of art. Beautiful card and I'm so glad you entered the Sweet Stampin' Challenge! I hope to see more of your art work in weeks to come! --Gail

Paula, Thanks. It was a lot of fun! It was a little squished when I gave it to her, :-) but it is always a special treat when you see the person looking at all the details on something you make for them.
