Happy Birthday to Our Fairy Princess!

Today's card was made for a bunch of different challenges and a very special granddaughter. I love when I can work a bunch of challenges into one card with time being so short. It seems like ever since I retired I just have so little time, I really do not know what I do with it, but I do know I am always facing a deadline somewhere. (Just ask my sister , she is always complaining about not seeing me enough! LOL!)

For today's card I used my gypsy and welded two circles together using George and Basic Shapes. Then I used Lacy Labels for the front of the card, it has so many beautiful labels that can be used for cards or photo mats. The Fairy and tag were cut from a Child's Year, the more I use this cartridge the more I like it. I think the fairy turned out so beautiful, just like our sweet little granddaughter.

The first challenge is Whimsical Wednesday: This was a tough one and I really hope I did it right. Their challenge this week is called Three Times a Charm! 3 cuts ( tag, fairy and mat 3 layers), 3 colours( pink, white and green) and 3 of the same embellishments( 3 pink pearls).

Next is Fantabulous Cricut Challenge me Monday: Birthday Bash-make a birthday project.

Celebrate the Occasion: Circle Card

Birthday Sundae's: Use Pink, White and green & a Birthday Sentiment


Tanks for Stopping by have a super good week!
