Happy Birthday Card

Happy Thursday to everyone!  It has been a while since I posted a card, but it has been crazy here, what with us moving and stuff!!

This week I made a special birthday card for my best friend.  She is turning thirteen!!!

My friend introduced me to this type of card making, and Friday Sketchers Challenge.  From there, we both found new challenges, and now, Heidi is a guest designer for Stampin for the Weekend!!!

I really love this card - basically because it is PINK - my favorite color, but I am sure you all know that by now, because practically all my cards have pink somewhere on them!!!  Maybe it is because I am one of five pink is a favorite of us ALL!

This week I took part in the following challenges:

Stamp Something - Happy Sometimes
One Stitch At A Time Challenge - Celebrations 
Charizma Cards Challenge All About Bling
My Time To Craft - Xtra Special
Crafts And Me - Friends or Family
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Nice and Girly 

So now, here is my birthday card:

I used a double-sided sheet of paper only for this card!

I used the stamp from the Sugar Nellie Collection called 'Demure'.  I chalked all the way around the stamp for a pretty effect!

The little butterfly had a different gem on it, but it fell off, so I replaced it with a pink gem!

I decorated the inside too, and it says: 'Happy Birthday To A special Friend'.  

This card took some real thought!  I started using the Friday Sketchers layout, but then saw that I needed to change it a little - so I can't take part in Friday Sketchers!

Have a wonderful Friday!
