A Birthday Card for Gabrielle

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well?  Sorry it has been such a long time since I last posted a card!  This time I’d like to show you a card I made for my second youngest sister, Gabrielle.  She will be turning four years old on the 17th of April!

I really love this paper!  The colours are beautiful and I am happy to say I didn’t use too much pink, but varied with a little orange!

It was my dearest mother’s idea to tie lots of little bows out of pink and orange organza ribbon and create this!

This little stamp really suites Miss Gabrielle!

I put a flower brad in each of the two flowers and I also used a few pearls to finish off the card!

I would also like to enter the following challenges:

This is my second youngest sister, Miss Gabrielle. She adds a lot of joy to our family and we love her lots!
So that is my card, I hope you like it!

Enjoy the rest of your week – many blessings,
