Floral Birthday



Happy Sunday! I love all the new trends and fun things in this papercrafting world that we live in, but I also love my old favorites. I am a complete nut about designer paper and I still love this retired SU! paper called "Walk in the Park". I have several sheets left but only a little bit of the old "coral' that matches. Luckily the other colors are still available.

I made this card for several challenges. First, a color challenge over at the Play Date Cafe.













The second challenge was Create with Connie and Mary SU! only challenge to make a celebration card & use Designer Paper. I hope using retired DP counts! Everything in my card is SU! I purchase lots of SU! products- their quality is fabulous and dependable. Pretty much I love everything they make! 

My last challenge was the Clean & Simple sketch Challenge. I really love this sketch. My card may be a notch above CAS but I am happy how it turned out. I hope you like it too! 

 Have a Happy Week! Hugs, Marilyn

Very soft and pretty! Great job combininb challenges. I like the layered flowers and I loved that retired DSP! There's some patterns I think SU should just bring back...this package is one of them! Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!
