A Multi-Layered Birthday Card

Happy First Day of Spring!

For today's KCRR challenge we have a versatile selection of elements:

Lucky Limeade
Decorate Inside of Card

I decided to pair this challenge with a couple others. The Pink Elephant has a recipe challenge this week which happened to work quite well with what I had in mind! 

Lots of Layers
Pinch of Green 

And the Shabby Tea Room has a simple theme challenge this week:

'Anything Goes'

I combined all three challenges to make this multi-layered, bright and cheery birthday card:

I love the layered look in this card. After sketching out my design, I combined embossed cardstock, designer paper, punched out shapes and stamped images to make this fun layout.  The new Decorative Dots embossing folder adds the perfect texture to this card. I embellished the card with Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon, bakers twine and a rhinestone on the cupcake. 

I kept it simple on the inside of the card and simply layered a scalloped edge border and striped designer paper. 

Thanks for stopping by! Hope it's starting to feel like Spring wherever you are! 

Make sure to hop on over to Karly's Creations to see what she has created with these 3 elements! I've seen her card and it's absolutely gorgeous!
