Cute Card Thursday Challenge #51




This is my take for Cute Card Thursday Challenge #51. Its their birthday week and there are loads of prizes for grabs. The theme is on celebration and I liked the sketch very much. It gave me the idea to make a bookmark together with the tag for my girl's classmate. She is a good reader at 5 and loves reading, spelling and talking. Her birthday is just around the corner so this card shall go together with her present- a book, of course!

I found the big felt flower in a market here. There were 8 of them stringed together like some hanging ornament, but I just stripped them out and used them for my crafts. They make good embellishments especially if u want to draw attention to something, but because there are so many flowers and I wanted focus on the girl, I toned down my sentiment and just stamped 'Hugs'. The sentiment stamp is from my Clear Dollar Stamp collection and the girl is from Whiff of Joy's Spring Kit!!!

I am to rest now...feeling off color...change of seasons...too many visitors...sleepless nights cos' of the young ones waking...
