Birthday for Granddaughter

One of my granddaughters birthday is next week. She enjoys doing art projects at school. I bought her an art set and one of the adult coloring books for her birthday gift. I like to color images for cards but I think those intricate designs in the adult coloring books would drive me crazy. They are advertised to be relaxing.
Her favorite color is pink so naturally that is the basis of her card. (Melon Mambo from Stampin' Up!)
I pulled out my pink prints and chose this paisley which also has a little purple and bright green in it. Then attached a purple scallop border (Fiskar). The sentiment is from SU. I thought the fill in letters would be great for the coloring theme of the gifts. I filled them in with different color star get glitter pens. She also loves all things sparkly. The cupcake and ice cream cones are from a set of miniature images that no longer have their label. Using a Cuttlebug impression folder in a swirl pattern gives interest to the background and repeats the paisley pattern.
I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches but rotated it.

Here is the inside of her card. The sentiment is from my Hallmark program but I did the words in all the different colors from the front.
While I had all the pink DPs out, I used the sketch again and made a card to go in my collection for Send A Smile 4 Kids. I had leftover flowers from SU's Botanical Blossoms from another card I had made. They fit perfectly for the accents here. 


  1. What a fun card for your granddaughter! Love all the sparkle, and your sentiment on the inside is FABULOUS!!

  2. Once again a couple of GREAT cards Donna!! I love pink and I love how you did the sentiment inside. Thanks for joining us over at Tuesday Morning Sketches:o)

  3. Pretty card for your GD!! (Those coloring books don't look relaxing to me, either!!)
    Thanks for playing along this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!
