A Starry Birthday

Hello everyone!  I have not been good about making cards for family the last few months, but my daughter's BFF's birthday is today and I managed to make her one.  Of course, she is like a daughter to me and calls me mom, so I guess it is for family :)

It also happens to fit in the My Creative Time Designer's Challenge set by Miss Emma herself.  She picked a challenge that is perfect for me--Bling it Up!  I do love to add something sparkly pretty much all the time :)


I originally was using some animal print paper, but then I needed to add some bling.  I really wanted to use these stars that I picked up at Hobby Lobby, so I was going through my paper stash and found this purple star paper--perfect!  I wished I used the It's all about you stamp after that, but this does work too.  I don't know if you can tell, but I pop dotted the frame up since I just used the same paper on the stamped part and frame.

My daughter said it was very purple, but I really like this one!  I think her BFF will too :)  Have a great weekend if I don't post before then!!



  1. All of the purples go together so well. The stitching and stars are great. Super job!
