Birthday Side Step Card Using CTMH Dream Pop Paper and Cricut Artiste Cartridge

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #63 -Theme Pink And Girly
With Sparkle
Hi all my fellow crafters and readers!  I hope this finds everyone well.  We have been having hot weather in Southern CA with temperatures one day of 103 degrees.  I wasn't ready for summer yet; but maybe it will cool down before it really decides to stay hot.  It cooled down for a few days now; but warming back up again.

It is another fabulous week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #63 -Theme Pink And Girly With Sparkle.  Our sponsors this week are Eureka Stamps and Delicious Doodles with some lovely Digi Stamps for prizes.  Be sure to visit their websites for the incredible Digi Stamps.  Don't forget to view all of the great creations by the DT and leave a lovely compliment for everyone.  We love compliments. 
If you would like to be a Guest Designer on our team for a week; just add GDT behind your name when you enter you creation.  We would love for you to take a chance and see if you can win.  It is lots of fun!!   

This was a fun challenge for me.  I decided to use one of the Digi stamps I own that are already colored.  I used Whoopsi Daisy Sheet Number 413 to create a birthday card for my oldest granddaughter, Vicki,  who is turning 21 yrs. old.  I thought of using a Digi of an adult; but I think these little girls are so cute for any age birthday.  This one was pink and girly; so I think she will like it.  I got carried away with all the sentiments; but the 21st birthday is such a special birthday that I couldn't choose just one.  LOL. 

I created another side step card.  I love this type of card.  I used the new CTMH Dream Pop paper for this card!  I love this paper and can't get enough of it.  It has very bold and vibrant colors; which I love.  If you want one of these paper packets; be sure to purchase $35 and you can own it for only $10 - but only in the month of May.  Click here to visit my CTMH website to place your order.

  11. Another gorgeous card and you are right it isn't just a typical birthday card. That is why it is important to add a comment with a few words about why you feel your project is inspirational or positive in nature when entering the Path of Positivity Challenge which of course you did splendidly. The tone of this card will definitely lift your granddaughter's spirits and hopefully show her how special she is to you. Thanks for adding another card to this month's challenge.

I think it is a great for us to comment about why we think our creation is inspirational. Sometimes it isn't obvious to the viewer. I moved your badge up a little higher on the blog so others will see it easier. I also added it to groups I am involved with on Facebook; so hopefully it will bring you more entries. Have a fabulous week Lisa. Hugs, Gloria
