Birthday Bonanza!

big flowers, little flowers, upsy daisy, stampin up, stamping, stampin up demonstrator, cards I know so many people who's birthdays are coming up! Today is one of my dance student's birthday. I don't give all of my student's cards, but this one is a student assistant, so I wanted to give her a little something!

This is using the sketch challenge that will be found over on Sketches By Tamarah on Thursday. I love giving sneak peeks! Make sure you head over there on Thursday to play and make your own card using her sketch!

Anyway, back to the birthdays... I have another student assistant who's birthday is on Saturday, my dad's birthday is on Sunday... then I have 2 more student assistants with birthdays on the 25th & 26th... so I'll be making a lot of birthday cards in the coming days!

For this card, I decided to utilize my new in-colors which I haven't really played with exclusively. I knew I wanted to use Pacific Point because the color is just so vibrant & fun! I matched it up with Pink Pirouette & Baja Blue and came out with this!

I also pulled out 2 unloved sets, Big Flowers & Little Flowers... both are very versatile and I don't know why I haven't used them in so long!

Paper: Pink Pirouette, Baja Blue, Pacific Point, Whisper White (SU!)
