Clean and Simple Birthday Card for LeAnne

Clean and Simple Flower Birthday Card (2)

I decided to combine my Monday challenges today and when I saw the Merry Monday challenge today was a Birthday Hop – I was SO excited!  Of course, I went to Mojo Monday first thing at 5 AM East Coast Time…and fell in love with the sketch right away – I mean how could you not – the possibilities were endless!  I was already thinking up all sorts of Christmas ideas…then quickly switched gears and made a fun bright CAS birthday card instead!

I love LeAnne Pugliese’s cards every time I see them on the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge Blog, so I decided she needed a Birthday card that was fun, sassy, and colorful with no less than my latest little addiction – sequins (thanks Deanne – I have you to blame for these).

I knew I wanted to use the Sassy Salutations birthday greeting and my mind immediately went to the bright pink Gerber Daisy.  My sister-in-law Claudia had these at her wedding and I couldn’t stop taking photos of them, they were so editorial!

Now I know the middles are mostly yellow, but I left it black so that I didn’t bring another color in.  It’s a fun little card, don’t you think?  My favorite parts – the flower, belly band and of course, I’m a convert – the sequins!  So LeAnne – this card is for you!  I hope you have a FABULOUS birthday!

  9. This is awesome!!! Love the turned up edges of the flower and the embossed greeting on vellum – beautiful!

  10. Great Birthday Card Ingrid! I love the color combo you chose and love the vellum with the salutation on it. The added sequins are just delightful! I too have been playing with sequins and have found them addicting.
