Sweet Sugarplum Birthday Card

I am loving the new Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 In Colors, and one of the prettiest is Sweet Sugarplum.  I created this birthday card for my granddaughter Olivia.  She is a girl who loves purple, so I combined Sweet Sugarplum with Rich Razzleberry and Blushing Bride for a very girly birthday card.  I love the Number of Years stamp set for the ability to totally customize a birthday card for our loved ones!  I took it a step further than the number six.  I stamped six mini flowers and added six sequins.  These are little touches that make a big difference.  I knew that Olivia would pick up on that little, loving detail:)  This is one of the great joys of handmade cards:  bringing joy and delight to those we love.

Olivia's BDay Card

I love it when Olivia opens my cards and knows just by the envelope that Gramma made it for her:)  Melts my heart!  Every party of this birthday card was intentional as I was thinking of Olivia and wanting to make something special for her special day.  I added bits of shine as she loves things that are sparkly and pretty and sweet– just like my Olivia!

I hope this inspires you to make something pretty today!  And especially to try one of my favorite new color combos:  Sweet Sugarplum with Rich Razzleberry.   Thanks so much for stopping by.  As always, products used are listed and linked below.  Just click on any pic for more info and/or easy shopping.
