My Challenge Entry: A Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for my sister-in-law who will be turning 40 on Sunday! She is also due to have a new baby girl in 3 weeks. I made this following a couple of challenges:

The Pink Elephant: Use 3 brads, 1 flower and designer paper
Pile It On: Use 3 flowers

I cut out the flowers using 2 different designer sheets of paper, mounted on cardstock and inked the edges, then attached to the kraft with colored brads. I used 3 different green polka dot prints for the stems. The pleats are made of green vellum, (and according to Coach, pleats are big this fall!) and more patterned paper for the bottom of the "garden". The greeting is a hand cut banner with a stamped "birthday greetings" attached with foam tape. The card base itself is light blue.

  6. Just when I thought you couldn't make anything cuter, you did! Too hard for Temptations? I think it would go over very big.
