To Our Sweet Girl

So many August birthdays!  It's been such a busy cardmaking month for me.  And I have three more to go.  But, that's ok.  I love making cards.  This one is for our sweet granddaughter, who turned 5 last week.  It's hard to believe!  And she'll be starting kindergarten next week.  Where has the time gone?!?  She is the reason I scrapbook.  I started making a book for her before she was born.  And she is the star of so many of my pages.

I made this card using the little turtle from the Paisley Cricut cartridge.  I've been wanting to use that turtle, and thought it would be cute for her birthday card.  I layered it on one of the labels from the Lacy Labels Cricut Lite cartridge.  I added some wide ribbon I had in my stash, and a punch using a Recollections border punch.  I put little pearls on the punched flowers.  The sentiment is computer generated of course.  I also added some K & Co. flowers that were in my stash.

Hope you like it!
