A Birthday Card!!!

Wow, I haven't made a "special" birthday card in a long time.  But I had to try Birthday Sundaes inaugural challenge.  And I decided to enter this in the 365 Cards ABC Challenge, Pause Dream Enjoy's Fancy Fold Challenge, and Crafty Cardmakers Special Birthday Challenge.



This was my first time ever making a tri-fold style card.  Amazingly Enough, I didn't use my Cricut--Was feeling really lazy!

Recipe:
DCWV Textured White Core Cardstock in Turquoise
Paper Studio Birthday Extravaganza Mat Stack (LOVE THIS!!!!)
Ribbon Scraps
Buttons
Brads
Decorative Clip
Embroidery Floss
Foil Stickers
Vellum Stickers

I am totally loving how it turned out!  A card like this is really cool because you can use up all your scraps, plus it looks like it took hours (well, it DID take an hour and a half, but that was with a few pauses for bedtime stories, prayers, and snuggles).

Head on over to these challenge sites and try your hand at any of these fun challenges!  And let me know what you think!  I read every precious comment, and I love new followers friends!
