I think this card looks very wintery (and maybe not so much like a birthday card but the sentiment inside is definitely birthday) and that is kinda on purpose as my SIL hates winter (but they live in WI, lol!). I used paper from the SU! pack called Fresh Prints which I'm sure is retired now but I just love those colors! I used dies from the Card Mat Dies set, Winter Die set and the Flag set, all from Jaded Blossom. I also cut out the offset on which to stamp Felicity on my Cameo...Stamp AnnieThing provides those SVG files for free which is wonderful! This layout is the sketch from Sketch Saturday for this week so I'll be entering it there as well as the Craftin' Desert Diva's Make It Sparkle linky challenge...Felicity's skirt, scarf and even the frap cream has sparkle on it as well as the ice paper and the paper behind Felicity (it looks really pretty in real life), the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog which is anything goes this time, Craft Your Passion is anything goes, and I think I'll show it off at my own PDE Linky Party this week too!
Alright, friends I'm off for the day and headed for the 'big city'. I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
