My Pink Stamper Challenge

Last night, I decided to play along with the challenge over at My Pink Stamper.  I needed to make a birthday card for a little girl in my class, so I decided to make it for this challenge.

I used Mini Monograms for the base of the card; the scalloped square was cut on Real Dial Size at 5".  I added some stitching with my white gel pen.  Once I was finished, I wasn't sure if I love it or not....

For the main part of the card, I cut a piece of cardstock 3.75" x 7.50" and folded it to make the card.  I added the white mat (3.50"x 3.50"} and tied the ribbon.  The bee is from Paisley and was cut at 2.25".  I had fits with this little bee.  Don't you hate how sometimes your layers don't match up, even when you cut everything the same size with your Cricut?  As you can see, if you look closely, my yellow didn't want to line up with my black layer on the bee.  I added some bling to the flower and stamped Happy Birthday in pink.

This was a pretty simple card to make and I think it's perfect for a 9 year old girl. I love this bee from Paisley - I think she's super cute! (It was a "he" before I added eyelashes...ha ha)

Have a great Saturday!
