Starting off the New Year with Birthday card for Grand daughter

Yes, the new year means I need to get started on all the spring birthdays. My eldest grand daughter will be 12 tomorrow. Cannot believe how old my grands are making me!

She loves horses so bought this stamp just for this card. I hope she likes it as much as I thought she would. lol She tends to like the darker colors and teals and browns and such so that is what I chose. The little calendar was a free printout that I found on Pinterest. Am loving all the great finds there. The Birthday sentiment may look a little crooked on the bottom but it is actually mounted on an action wobble so it jiggles when moved. And you can see that I finished it off with stickles as always.

Challenges I am entering are:

Crafty Ribbons- sketch.....which I turned sideways.

Paper Sundaes
- something old-flowers, stickles and die cuts....something new- 3 stamps

Bunny Zoe's Crafts- fancy fold card

Kaboodle Doodles

Paper Creations- die cuts or punches. Used an old quikutz for the vines and leaves and sizzlet dies for the name

Cutie Pie
- sentiment

Crafts 4 Eternity- sentiments Thanks Pinky for the heads up!

Thanks for stopping by. May God richly bless your 2012!
