Happy Birthday!

I thought I would get this posted before I was off to surgery but for some reason didn’t make it so here I am.   I’m still on some high powered medicine so if what I write doesn’t make any sense just have a good laugh!
I made this card for my daughter on her birthday and you can probably guess she’s a tennis player.

When designing this card I decided to use the colors she wears when playing in tournaments.  She likes purple and orange and her shoes are neon green and white so here you have it. 
I embossed the background with a Happy Birthday embossing folder to give it a different look.

I then pulled out all my drawers of flowers and went to work picking out the right ones I thought would look good on this card.
I knew the purple and lavender flowers wouldn’t be a problem but wasn’t sure about the orange till the drawers came out.  Once the flowers were in place I knew I had to add a purple bow to make it complete.
Now it’s time to do something with the inside.

So here you have it and I’m happy to say she really liked it (her birthday was yesterday).
Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking a look.  May the rest of your week be great and with the week-end approaching it’s even better.
