Emma and the Cake



Well, it's just a little over three weeks until Spring begins. I can't wait. Here in Pennsylvania, we've been bombarded with so much snow this month and they're calling for a little more tomorrow night. Every winter I go through a depression but this year is worse then ever. My passion is card making and it's even been a struggle to do this lately. However, my beautiful Granddaughter Mya celebrated her 7th birthday Saturday, so I made her a very special card. It actually did feel good to create again.

My card today was created with a pre-colored imaged from Fred She Said called "Emma and the Cake"
Mya's favorite color right now is Pink. So I started out with the Pink Emma and matched it up with The Lollydoodle Paper pack from Close to my Heart. 

The Happy Birthday is from the Holiday Tags stamp set from CTMH. This is my "Go To" stamp set most of the time. Great sentiments and matching tags. 

The pink Hearts and small flowers were punched form the Pink Glitter Papers. The Green banner was cut from the Green Glitter Papers. The hearts and banner were hung from the Pink bakers twine form the Paradise assortment.
Pink Glitter Gems were added to the center of the flowers.

Challenges for this card:
Seize the Birthday - Use hearts on Birthday card.
Catered Crop - Birthday
One Stitch at a Time - Girly
Quirky Crafts - Pile it on & 3D
Ink on My Fingers - Have a Heart

This is just adorable. I love the die you used to cut the image out. The glittered banner and teeny flowers are too cute!

What a lovely card, and I do understand about winter...I too am that way sometimes...but I do find creativity does help me...even if I have to push myself.

The colours are just lovely on your card and I do so love that image.

Thanks for playing along with us this week at One Stitch at a Time for our Girly Challenge. Good luck.
