"Blingy" Birthday Card

Update:  My card won the Ribbon Girl voucher on the ABC Challenge: J is for Jewels.

My granddaughter is celebrating her 14th birthday, and since she loves the color purple and a lot of bling, I thought I'd combine the two and make her a "blingy" birthday card.
I found some "Bling on a Roll" by Darice at my local craft store as well as some glittered pearls.  I used a design by Mary Fish and created a birthday card.  I looped the "bling" around the bow I made, added some glittered pearls, and after I stamped the message with silver ink, I embossed it so it would be shiny.

Inside the card, I made a small envelope and put the check I gave her inside the envelope!  I wrote a greeting on the die cut--so much more attractive than a rectangular piece of white paper!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Mini Thank You Card

I often have to thank friends for gifts, etc., but I don't want to make a large card.  I created this card that measures 3-1/2" x 5" and have found that it is just right for a short thank you note.

Fancy Fold Red and White Happy Birthday Card!

My good friend loves the color red, so I used a fancy fold card that I found on Dawn Griffith's blog to make her a birthday card.

The inside of the card has a greeting and a space for a written message.

Fancy Fold For Mother's Day

I always make Mother's Day cards for my daughters; without them, I would not be able to celebrate Mother's Day!  I found a new fancy fold on Dawn Griffith's website, and it is now my favorite go-to card!
