Birthday Card Using CTMH Ivy Lane Paper and Make It Crafty Digi

Hello Blogland! I have been back from vacation almost one week; and was able to get two cards created in the past few days.  I missed creating, my friends and my two teams more than anything; while I was gone.  LOL!  I hope everyone is doing well in blogland. We had perfect weather when we got home; but the heat is back in Southern CA.  It has been in the 90's now; and it isn't even summer yet.  

Be sure to register/comment for a chance to win in my Celebration of 2 yrs with CTMH and over 550 followers. Email me if it won't accept your comment. Click here for link-

I was able to get a card made for the current challenge we are having at The Squirrel and The Fox Midway - Let's Hear It For The Girls!  We are having this challenge for 4 weeks. This one is fun and should be very easy for all of you creators out there. 

I chose to use Make It Crafty - Holly Rose Digi Stamp.  I love their images.  I decided to color with the lighter colors for this card.  I have never tried this hair color before; but I kind of like it.  The CTMH Ivy Lane Paper Pack is only while supplies last; so buy yours right away before they are all gone.  This is my favorite paper pack for the Current Idea book.
