My First card challenge! And a surprise!

Hello my Scrappy Friends! I hope you haven't fallen out of your chair seeing that I actually participated in a card challenge! The biggest kicker of all is that I also did a video showing you the results! I know I'm shocked myself! I have a very good friend that I have known since sixth grade and she has never failed to remember my birthday all these years! I actually remembered this year in time to make her a very special birthday card and get it mailed up to her! I was inspired by the card challenge over at Frosted Designs and thought why not make her birthday card using this sketch! I'm so glad I did I really love how it turned out!

Here's my card


A different view of the flower! I love how this flower pops!


And the inside surprise!!!


video


I recycled/up cycled an old card I had received! I was trying to get ideas for the inside because I hate to write, when a light-bulb came on to use the music that the card played! So I cut it to size and covered the sentiment. Now I wish I would've made the inside pretty too but I was in such a hurry to finish to get it in the mail that I forgot:( Whoops...

1. Frosted Designs - card sketch # 13
2. Made Especially for You- Stitching...I stitched around one of the paper layers.
3 .Celebrate the Occasion- Birthday-must use Bling.......I added the little rhinestones



Thanks for stopping by:)
