Birthday Sundaes Challenge # 23

Hi Everyone,
This week the challenge on Birthday Sundaes is a colour challenge. Create a card using only pink/green/white and other neutrals if needed. Oh and don't forget the birthday sentiment on the front of your card. Then link up before next Sunday (Aug. 28) so we can all be inspired and you will be given the chance to win a great prize! DT Member Sue has sponsored us with a set of Large Oval Scallops Nestabilities. Thanks Sue!


I decided to try and get myself ahead a bit and make a card for my Nanny who's birthday is in September. I find I have a ton of cards made up but most of them are kiddish and well honestly, I don't have very many kids I give birthday cards too so I am really going to have to try and come out of my box and make some more mature looking cards. Wish me luck :)


Details:
Cardstock: White = Staples Brand, Pinks + Green = Recollections
Sentiment: JustWordz Everyday sentiments set
Cricut cut: Forever Young cut @ 3"
Jelly roll gel pen
Ribbon and pearl: Dollarama
Cuttlebug + Victoria folder

Tara, this is lovely! I think you're on the right track of making more "mature" (as you put it!) cards. I love the flower you made and that ribbon is gorgeous!
