Birthday Card for Cathy

   Black shopping for me, I plan to stay home and craft. Yesterday I did a fun blog hop celebrating Mimi's birthday. I visited 11 designers blogs and saw some really fun cards. As I was viewing some cards I found myself just smiling and getting inspired. So this morning I made this birthday card for a chance to win the Birthday Bash Blog Hop.

The base card is actually purple. I used some colorful origami paper to create gift boxes and tied them up with bows. Punched little flowers in coordinating paper added pearls and stamped the sentiment. When your birthday is on Thanksgiving some bright and colorful presents will cheer you on. I hope you had a great birthday and Thanksgiving Cathy... Keep jumping in puddles  ;)

Now I'll get back to playing with my paper.   Be well Carole
