Celebrate the Little Things

Do you ever wonder which cards should make it to your blog and which ones are simply not worthy? I am often my harshest critic so I decided to post something that made the recipient beam from ear to ear. At least I know one person likes this (other than me that is).

Last Sunday I realized that I had one hour to make a card for my niece for her final gymnastics competition. Why I left this to the last minute is beyond me. All I knew when I sat down was that it had to be girly, glitzy, and in her club colours. After starting (and tossing) a few, this is what I finally decided on. And she loved it. The smile on her face when she opened it, realizing that it was not only made just for her but matched her outfit, made my day. She's such a gem and I love her to pieces.

Hope you enjoy the card as much as she did!! Forgive the lousy photo. I took this one in a rush before, once again, rushing out the door.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams, Signature Greetings (PTI)
Ink: Lilac Posies, Grape Jelly, Rose Red, Cloud White (Tsukineko)
EP: white, clear, and kaleidoscope (Stampendous)
