Girl Birthday Cake Card

  Have you ever had one of those days where you wonder if there is a brain in your child?  I had one of those days today. Between trying to get me to believe that "Clean the bathroom," does not include the toilet and giving me 30 minutes notice that he needs a birthday card for a party I think I could have cheerfully locked myself in the bathroom and taken a bath for hours! However, only because I know what a wonderful friend the girl has been to Scott, I put on my creative thinking cap for a fast card.

Scott is so lucky that Scrapbook Steals had a Girls Paperie Set at an awesome price and that it arrived a couple of weeks ago. With having boys my female papers are pretty limited. If you haven't signed up for Scrapbook Steals go get on their email list now. They have 2 daily specials one at 9 am and another at 9 pm MST.  I've bought stuff that was as much as 75% off! And it has arrived quickly and well packed. Shipping is also very reasonable.

So onto the project at hand. Here's the 30 minutes to design and create card:


Cardstock: Core'dinations So Mod Pretty - in -Pinks (I cut a 5x7 card using the pinking blade for my Kaisercraft Trimmer, White Cake is DCWV White Glitter Cardstock

Paper: The Girls Paperie Newsprint Stripe (Oh how I love this paper!) I cut this with a straight blade 4.5 x 6.5. The pink iridescent paper I bought years ago at Michael's on clearance (cake trim), Gold Glitter paper scrap, Light Blue paper scrap

Die: Sizzix Birthday Cake #2 (Currently on sale for $2.99 (retail $14.99) at the Sizzix Outlet  )PS: Check out the new Sizzix Blog.

Embellishments: Blue ribbon (Michael's), Creative Charms Butterfly, Petaloo Flora Doodles 

Be sure to mark July 25th on your calendar. We will be having a Christmas in July Bog Hop!  And I have blog candy for it:)

Well I have a layout that demands to be finished for tomorrow, so I'd better get back to my real agenda.

Wishing all of you a quiet evening with no last minute needs being sprung on you! LOL
