Colorful Birthday Card

Yes, I shamelessly copied a card design from my crafting Pinterest board to make this simple b-day card for my dear daughter-in-law.
The designer patterned paper (reward pack from my demonstrator), cardstock ("In Color" collection), sentiment ("Wetlands"), aqua ink ("Coastal Cabana"), and dark pink ink ("Strawberry Slush") came from Stampin' Up. My new inchie punches came in handy for the squares, and the floral stamp is by Inkadinkadoo ("Meadow" set).

I could create cards like this all day! Fun, colorful, and simple. I'm lovin' it :)

ODBD April Challenge: Masculine cards

Another month means another chance for OWH card-makers to create a card for the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge! This month we are working on masculine cards. Mine is appropriate for Dad's of all ages and has a longer shelf-life than the "Happy Father's Day" cards. I actually had a completely different design in mind with a digi stamp when I started working at my craft desk today. But it didn't turn out :( So I thought of something else and this is the outcome.

ODBD has generously offered to sponsor up to two boxes of cards to be sent to our deployed military by Operation Write Home. We only need 50 cards and both boxes will ship! Thanks, ODBD!
