#Happy Day

My friend's little girl has a birthday coming up and I needed to make a card for the occasion.  She is not a girly girl, so I knew I had to stay away from the frills.  Going through some scraps I had been saving, I came across stickers and pieces of papers from Webster's Pages.  Here is the card I made.

The pattern horizontal strips of papers at the top and bottom of the background are actually stickers as are the three circular designs and the bird.  The flowers are Prima and their centers are My Mind's Eye.  The banner is also from My Mind's Eye as is the yellow and white twine bow.  The stamped sentiment is Heidi Swapp.

What do you think?  I don't think it's too girly in spite of the flowers.  And I got to use up some of my stash that I had forgotten about.

I am working on some ATCs for a Halloween ATC swap on Facebook.  One in particular I enjoyed making as I got to work with my Copics and Distress Markers on a stamped image.  Can't wait to share them here.  I really enjoy the coloring and want to do more along those lines.

We've had a nice stretch of fall-like weather the last few days, but summer is trying to hang on today with warm temperatures and humidity.  But, that is to be expected this time of year and for about another month.  I did a bit of fall decorating today to get ready for the season and all the wonderful things it brings.  I hope all is going well for you.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I appreciate your sweet comments.
