The Greeting Farm & Alacraft Birthday Card


It's that time of the month again, where I share my Alacraft project with you all! 
Don't forget the monthly giveaway on the Alacraft website, and the 20% off for all blog readers (just use code JESS20 on checkout)
Now, on to my card! I'm really excited by this one... Sad, I know...
As always, I started by picking out some patterned papers, and the stamp I wanted to use... For this card, I used Echo Park patterned paper, and stamps by The Greeting Farm, & Stampin' Up! I coloured up my little girl, using pinks and purples, then set her aside. I folded a card base in white, then trimmed down some pink card to fit inside it. My patterned paper was trimmed to size, then doodled around the entire piece. I then added some pretty Satin ribbon (in Iris, I think). I popped a ribbon slider on, and attached the ribbon to the back of my card, using double sided tape. Then, I went through my stash of flowers, and grabbed a white flower with pearl stems, a pink flower and a purple rose. These were attached with hot glue, and then I found a pink rhinestone, and had it peek out from behind the white flower...
