Happy Birthday to You!- Cute Card Thursday Challenge

In honor of my oldest's birthday yesterday, I created a few birthday cards one for her and a few for the fundraiser I am participating in tomorrow. This card is also for Cute Card #53 Challenge:

Challenge 53 - "Family Affair"A nice easy one for this week!! We want you to make a card for a member of your family. As simple as that. Could be mum, dad, husband, son, sister - anyone!!

I cannot believe another year has come and gone for "M". She is turning into a beautiful young lady. Her big surprise was 2 pairs of pierced earrings. Now, to most, this would be NO BIG, but for her, it signified that Daddy was finally going to let her get her ears pierced! 5 years of asking and she finally has grown into the responsible person to be able to care for her own ears. It was the highlight of the evening! Today, despite the rain, we are going into the City of Brotherly Love for a "REAL" cheesesteak sub (you are not allowed to call it a hoagie, that is for ham/cheese and then no mayo is allowed all oil/vinegar- trying to figure out Philadelphia-ese can be frustrating!) This will be a photo op for the scrapbook. Now to choose between Pats, Genos or Tony Lucs....hmmm....

In keeping with the birthday theme, this is a simple card. But what is great about it for me, I am finally using up some things around here that I am just plain tuckered out of seeing. First the sunkiss yellow cardstock from CTMH. I rarely use it, don't know why, but I prefer more jewel tones. The ribbon is one I purchased from Michael's on clearance and have never found the right project to use it on until now. Really goes with the "heart" cut from the Cricut. The heart is popped up with foam and really makes an impact on presentation. I think any young lady would appreciate this card. This is what the USE IT! challenges have done to paradigm has changed and now I am looking at my stash through new eyes! Check out the site if you have TOO MUCH stuff- if there ever is such a thing!LOL!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you......

Supplies: C/S- CTMH baby pink, white, and sunkiss yellow; Ribbon from Michael's; striped paper CTMH a retired baby girl paper pack; brads; Got Deux Flowers; 3d foam; Happy Birthday sentiment, CTMH acrylic set "happy birthday" (love this set, there are 15+ H/B stamps each a different font and size!); finally my fave tool, the scalloped scissors!
