My Daughter's Birthday Card

Hi Everyone and welcome back! I made this card for my daughter Amy her birthday is today and she loves purple. I love her so much she is the best daughter a mother could ask for. My granddaughter Blaize who is Amy's daughter she helped me with the inside of the card. Blaize (age 8) is my little crafting buddy we have so much fun together!
Take a look and let me know what you think. I would also like to thank all of you that take the time to leave a comment. You are all the greatest! Thank you!
Okay on to the card:

Tilda is # 211 Balloons at Diana's web store Magnolia-licious here there is also a link on my side bar.
Design Paper is by piggytales from the mary mary quite contrary collection
Paper flowers are from my stash not sure from what company.

I cut the balloons off that Tilda was holding and gave her this little rose. I air brushed some purple onto the rose and then added Stickles to all the flowers for some sparkle.
Blaize worked on the inside of the card. She picked a retired Stampin Up set that had a frog and these flowers. Blaize colored them and I cut them out for her. Oh I forgot to tell you that Amy loves frogs why I have no idea! LOL.
Thanks again for stopping by. Now I have to get busy and get my pretty in pink card made.
See you all soon.

awww...aren't those Grandbaby's just the coolest. I have 3 that live out of state and so miss seeing them on a regular basis. But I do have one that lives here and he's just the coolest. He's almost a year but I'll get him into things later...lol...

Your daughter will jsut cherish this card. It's so pretty. I really love those flowers and how you've embossed the background with the hearts. Simply a darling card Nancy.
