Beautiful Friendship Birthday Card

I send out several cards each month, but my favorite are always birthday cards. In that moment that I create a card, or mail it to its intended, I get to share in celebrating that special person. Such a great feeling.

Our featured paper collection, this month, is "Beautiful Friendship". When I saw the party banner paper, and the pink-striped paper, I knew just how I would use them. That stripe reminds me of wainscoting, so I placed that on the bottom and then added an 1/8" strip of white cardstock to resemble chair-rail molding. It ties the banner paper in well, and that sweet girl is our upcoming June stamp of the month called "A Bushel and a Peck". The little sentiment is from an A-size stamp set aptly named "Short and Sweet".

I made a ton of cards with this sweet girl. I just love her shy smile and cute sweater. 

I am entering this in to the current Color Dare #291 Challenge.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a blessed day.
