Little Girl's Birthday Card

It's my niece's third birthday party tomorrow so I thought I'd better get a card made for her.  Roisin (pronounced Ro-sheen) is a wee character and the youngest of my nieces and nephews.  I used the colors from this week's challenge at Create with Connie & Mary and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  I'm also going to use this for this month's Creative Crew challenge to use the 2011-13 In Colors with the challenge being to use our least favorite.  My least favorite is hands-down Wisteria Wonder, but Calypso Coral is a color I like but struggle to make work, so I'm choosing that.

Speaking of the Creative Crew at Splitcoaststampers, I've been invited to join the Crew for the May-August period, which is pretty awesome!  Keep an eye out on 1st May for my first challenge cards.

And after all that waffle, here's my card:


This card is pretty self-explanatory.  It's 5" square.  I punched three circles out of the challenge colors and stuck them together.  On top of the Island Indigo circle, I adhered a die-cut "3" which I then colored used Dazzling Details.  As a rare treat, I even decorated the inside of the card as well using stamps from Create a Cupcake!


Thanks for looking.
