Monkey Challenge #57: They Say It's Your Birthday!

Hello Everybody!

I really struggled with putting this card together for the A La Card Monkey Challenge - despite having a sketch and brief (see below) and not to mention some fantatic samples from the DT team and the other challenge entries to look at - it took me nearly all day long.

Anyway, this card was far from what I had imagined in my head and is probably the most girly girl card I have ever made. Once again the photo doesn't do it justice as it is a very textured card with the distress edges and the white mat on the background being crumbled.

Materials used are:
4400 SB Bazzill Basics 12x12 - Petunia
4399 SB Bazzill Basics 12x12 - Romance
4925 SB Essentials 12x12 - White
4374 Sticky Bling - Flourish
1655 - Sticky Bling - Fancy Flourish
1612 - Ribbon 25m - 1/4" Organdy - Pink
71053 ColorBox Fluid Chalk Inkpad - Berrylicious
Make A Wish Stamp - Retired from Crafty Kids
Kraft Card & Envelope from my stash

I know I have made this as a birthday card and I think it would be suitable for any little girl in that instance - but to be honest I am actually thinking of giving it to Charlotte when she completes her Confirmation in a few weeks.



  1. Looks great! Love the pink and the blings!

    I think you did awesome with the distressed edges and layout!

  2. A pretty card in pinks and love the bling too!
    You did a great job following the sketch card, Shame we can't see all the details, but scans and pics never capture the card properly.

  3. Pretty in pink and very girly with all the bling. Nice job with the sketch and the distressing, Thanks for playing with us at a la card monkey
