Flying high!

I did a big boo boo this week - I made a card especially for the current Michelle Perkett Studio challenge - I thought it was "go green" so I made a card with lots of bright lime green, but it's actually "go green for St Patrick's Day" - d'oh!!  Hey ho, nevermind - that'll teach me to rush!  Here it is anyway...

 


I love this Flying Birthday Girl (got mine from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here) - she is so carefree and fun!  I just wanted to spotlight her so I kept the layout really simple.

I'm off now - thanks for dropping by and a big thank you to all of you that leave me such sweet encouragement!




I am entering my card into the Cupcake Craft challenge for "up in the air" with optional green - TICK! -, the Pixie Dust Studios challenge for "go green" - TICK, TICK! - and Wags 'n Whiskers "Spring creations" - perhaps a smaller tick but I think the colours fit and the weather seems nice too! 




Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, K&Company Poppyseed Designer pad
Stamps: Michelle Perkett Studio Flying Birthday Girl, Pink Petticoat digi sentiment
Mediums: Copics
Accents:  ribbons from stash, Dew Drop
Tools: Martha Stewart border punch, Fiskars border punch, My Favorite Things mini rolled rose die, Stampin Up window punch
