Hugs Birthday Card

Hello Everybody!

Let me show the birthday card I made for my friend-and then I can tell you about it! :)

I was looking for things that my friend likes-and I didn't have much (in the way of farm animals and cowgirlish type things).  And as I was looking for something else (isn't that always the way?) it occurred to me that I am giving the card so it was ok if it was more a me card than a her card.

I like to make cards for people based on the people-I know many of us here in blogland do-that's part of the fun of make cards for our friends and family.  But I saw this old Stampin' Up stamp which reminded me of my spazzy self.  I used a Spell Binder die to make the cool scalloped circle. I saw the background that I had created for a different project but didn't work for that project.  (which is a stencil and distress oxides)  And then everything else came together.  I used Thickers foam letters to spell out Hugs because it was fun and we are always hugging. :)  LOL.

The cut little butterfly is from Queen and Company and the sparkly flower sequins are from Pink and Main.  I colored my spazzy "self" with Copic markers. :)  I used Nuovo Embellishment Mousse around the edges of the card to give them a little sparkle.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

{Pin}spirational Challenge #221:  The photo inspiration:
Here pink dress-definitely an inspiration to this card.  But I hope she doesn't sit up to fast-the top doesn't look that secure.  And she's going to need hugs if she falls off of that bike with those shoes.  (LOL I'm teasing I'm sure this is a photo shoot sort of thing and she's a model.)
