Primrose Summertime

Good morning! I'm so excited today! There's a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments and I'm the hostess! It's my first time hosting so I'm totally thrilled! :) This week our theme is

Female Birthday

So think of a special friend, daughter, or mother that has a birthday coming soon and make a card or project especially for them! For my card today, I used Primrose-Summertime and Digi Birthday Circles from Crafty Sentiments Designs. She is so sweet beside her little cat. I thought this would make a perfect card for my daughter's birthday coming up since she is a total animal lover. I colored Primrose with copics. I used my sizzix doily die cut behind her. Added some Latte ribbon from 3 Girl Jam, a big greenish flower from my Christmas swap partner, and smaller flowers from I Am Roses. This was my first time making a bow with the 3 Girl Jam ribbon and I was clueless. So...if any of you are as clueless as I was, click here for a YT tutorial. It's only 1 minute and shows how to make a double bow with the bow maker. I don't own the bow maker, so I improvised. I used my daughter's fingers! Wha la! I actually made a triple bow for this card. :) It was easy after I figured it out. Hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome prize this week!
