Birthday Backpack

 Hi friends!

Creating just for fun – my FAVORITE kind of creating!

I had a friend request a b-day card for her niece; her niece loves pink and lime green or blue and lime green – hence I found some striped paper that incorporated all those colors!  :D  I’m making her aunt look smart eh?  That’s my job!

The layout is last week’s Mojo Monday #195.  The fun backpack and sneakers image is from Ladybug Crafts Ink colored with Copics; I added a clear spica glitter pen to each of the hearts – very sparkly IRL.

I added lots of distressing and some fun pink brads in the corner.  I also added the little banner which says happy birthday and sponged the edges with VersaMagic pink.  I then added 3 felt flowers with opposite colored brads.  The pink felt is from Ladybug Crafts ink (thanks queenie poo) and the green felt is from PTI. Finished it off with some white enamel dots - super cute; hope her niece loves it!!

I took some liberties on the inside of the card and added a sentient from The Cat’s Pajamas, “Hope your birthday is as fabulous as me!”.  Isn’t that hilarious?

Thanks for stopping by; hope you are having a great week!

…backpacks full of gifts…

Hugs, ~M.
