My Creative Time May Blog Hop

Howdy! You should have made your way here from the amazing Tracy’s blog, if not start at our great leader’s blog. here: My Creative Time.

We have come to the end of another great release, and I have one more card to share with you all. I made this for a special little girl and I had so much fun making it.

DSCF0090

DSCF0092

I had a friend from college that posted about her daughters 3rd birthday, and since she always comments on my cards on Facebook, I offered to make her daughter a card and send it to her. She told me that her favorite color was purple, and it just so happens that I have been really into this light lavender tone for a while now. I try to tailor my color choices to the season, but I have definitely figured out my own personal go-to palette. It’s something that I have come to figure out recently.

So, after that, I went on the hunt for a few patterned papers. I ended up using the colorful polka dot from the DCWV Nana’s Kids Stack and some elements from the Celebration stack. I cut out the little bingo card and 3 square. From there it just kind of came together in no time.

I used Celebrate Good Times again. I am in LOVE with this set. I know that in my own personal collection that I really needed a great birthday set. I used the coordinating dies once again, but I chose to make the cupcake this time. Once I got the card together, I went over the embossed lines with some Crystal Stickles.
