May Your Birthday Be As Wonderful As You Are!

It's another reveal day over at Cardabilities.  We had a very unique and fun sketch to use this time.  I used the sketch to make my youngest daughter's birthday card.  Hard to believe my baby is 24! 

My daughter's favorite color is purple, so I used that color, and added some teal to it.  I had this great paper that my friend Lynn gave me for my birthday, and it was perfect for this card.  I cut four circles of different sizes with my Cricut using the George cartridge, shadowed them, embossed part of them, and layered them in the corners like the sketch.  I added some off white lace (that you can barely see in the picture) behind the circles.  I added a heart and butterfly punched with my Martha Stewart punches, aand some small purple pearls, and a little ribbon.  The sentiment is computer generated.  Of course the inside says, "be as wonderful as you are.  Happy Birthday."

Here is the sketch:


And here is my card:



Hope you'll join us and make a card with this fun sketch.

Thanks for looking!
