Card no. 73 - Happy Birthday and fun "girly" project

Today I made my first attempt for an Easel Card - easier than I thought and what a fun to make it too!

My older daughter's little friend had a birthday party, so I thought what a perfect opportunity to make a card with one of the fabulous Whiff of Joy images since for the next two months I am the Guest Designer ... yeah, I am braggin' :)

Also, I found a fabulous tutorial how to make hairbows and I really wanted to give it a try. Here is what I came up with:

The Card

The Image Detail
I used the same Designer paper and cut out a little circle and attached to the page pebbles. The look is fantastic. I will most definitely be using those again (and again).

The fun Pebbles Detail

I decorated the package with the same "Medieval" theme. I didn't have the same cardstock paper, so I used similar color, different texture.

The Package
And here are ...

The Hairbows
They were really fun to make. And OH-SO-EASY!!! Next time I need to buy a little longer fancy ribbon - I think they could be a little "thicker" or add third color. I surely will be making more.

The Detail

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, unknown Designer papers from my friend Melodie
Stamps: Whiff of Joy - Charlotte the Queen & the Castle from the Medieval Collection colored with ProMarkers, ShinHan Markers & Ciao Copics; round Happy Birthday from Inkadinkado; Alaina's name spelled with the Alphabet Stamps from Scrappy Cat stamps; Sweet Birthday wishes stamp from Inkadinkado
Embelishments: Page Pebbles by Making Memories, Rhinestones by KaiserKraft, Ribbon from Michaels & JoAnn's, Stickles, Glimmer Mist, Heart button from JoAnn's
Tools: Spellbinders' Nestabilities - Lables no. Six & Classic Scalloped Circle, MS Loop Edge Punch, Paper Trimmer, MS Scoring Board
