Urban Birthday

This card is for one of my daughter's friends -- she's a little bit girly, a little bit preppy and she loves pink.  I didn't want anything too distressed for this particular project, so I chose papers from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie collection.  The base is "Milk"; a really pretty, lightly distressed white. The floral layer is "Bountiful" - I rounded two of the corners, and sort of underlined it with a stitched rub on from Heidi Grace's "Borders" collection.  The grid patterned circle was taken from the center of a sheet of "Monarch".  One of the things I like about this particular paper is that there are so many different elements to cut out and use separately, or you could use the whole sheet for a scrapbook page.  I then punched 3/4" circles from the pink solid in this paper collection, "Morning Glory" and arranged them around the gridded circle to make petals.  I popped this layer up using some Stampin' Up! Dimensionals.  "Happy" was added with white chip board  Thickers from the Gift Box collection.  I hand wrote "birthday" underneath.  As a final touch, I rounded the upper right and lower left corners of the card with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.  I got this tool for my birthday.  Although it's a bit large and heavy, I do like it.

Hope you enjoy today's creation!  If you do, please be sure to leave me some love!
