Berry Sweet Makes A Return!

I don't want anyone to think that I have forgotten about finishing that blasted K&Company paper pack. I just needed to place the challenge on hold for a little while. I still haven't bought any paper, so the paper ban remains in full effect! I needed to make another Birthday Card for one of my Mom's friends, so out came the Berry Sweet paper! This girlfriend is 85 years young, and she loves when I make her cards. She loves dolls, so I make it a point to use some type of girl image on her cards.

This sweet image is from Make It Crafty and she is called Summer Dreams.  I colored her hat and dress with RV00, RV01, RV02, RV04, RV06 and FRV01. Her hair is a mixture of Y21, YR23, YR14. YR24, E97, and E99, Her skin is the usual, E0000, E000, E00, E001, E11, E93 and R20. I used a white gel pen to add some dots on her sandals and hat.  I kept her monochromatic because I knew the paper was very busy. I used some daisy ribbon I had for the bottom. I cut the corners and the shapes on the card using my Teresa Collins Sophisticated cartridge, Enjoy the Seasons Imagine Cart for the colors and my Imagine. I popped the Summer Dreams girl up using Pop Dots. I cut Happy Birthday using Paper Lace and my Imagine.
I decorated the inside of her card with the Berry Sweet Papers and a computer generated sentiment.
She was so happy to receive the card and made quite a fuss over it. Seeing how much my Mom's friends enjoy receiving handmade cards truly makes me happy that I started this hobby.
I am entering her in a challenge at Make It Colourful Challenge 29 The challenge is to color using Pinks!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Happy Crafting!
