I stepped out of my comfort zone...


This card is nothing of my normal style, but I love how it turned out. I decided when I sat down last night that I wanted to try something I have never done before. This is the busiest card I have ever made, with a lot of patterns and colors. I made this for a little girl who turns 4 this weekend, and I hope she likes it!!! All of the bling on this card is from a package my friend, Siobhan sent to me. I have no idea of the brand, as the entire packages are in Japanese, but I like using them!
Cardstock: SU Orchid Opulence, Gable Green, Whisper White
Pattern Paper: K&Company Specialty
Punches: SU 1/2, 3/4" circles, Photo Corners, Scallop Edge
Creative Memories Cutting System, Big Shot with Wingo Zingo Alphabet
Ink: SU Basic Gray, various SU Markers
Stamps: SU All Scallops, and cupcakes are from Studio G
I think that's about it, I am trying to use up hoarded embellishments, and paper!!!

Beautiful card! Love all the bright colors and patterns you used! I have a hard time making cards that look busy also but yours looks great! Love the scalloped edge, corner pieces and the layer behind the scallop edge
