Quixotic Paperie Challenge #1 ~ Birthdays

Good Morning!! Last week was the first challenge over at Quixotic Paperie and the challenge was to create a birthday card!! (As it was Elaines birthday!) I just got this cutie and had to use her!! They are new stamps from the Greeting Farm and Elaine is carrying them in her shop as well ~ here. I made this for a classmate of Kelsey and she requested that I make a card that is not dirty!! haha I don't think she likes the vintagey ones! LOL So I went with this pretty paper from October Afternoon that I had and never used. It is perfect for a 7 year old. I seen this gorgeous card that Stephanie made and it was a pretty and easier layout so I went with it!

Well that is it for me! I am off to my favorite misc. store to see if I can find any interesting items for Christmas presents. It is called the Basket Warehouse and they sell all kinds of stuff and I have to go at least once every couple weeks to see what new stuff they got! It is always different and I can find stuff there that I can't find anywhere else!! And most of the time I didn't even know I needed it!!! haha
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great day!!

Pretty!! The colors are so soft, for some reason I tend to go with the more rich colors, I don't know how that happens, lol, wish I could color like this. :) Love your mix of papers and all the little details.
