The first challenge? She wanted a GIANT card! It's her Mom's 75th birthday, and she wanted to go big. I had her go to the Tiddly Inks store and pick out a digi stamp. I laughed when she did, because she picked out a bear with balloons. I had NEVER colored fur or balloons before!! YouTube became my best friend for a few days, as I binge watched tutorials!
I am actually pretty proud of my first attempt at both fur and balloons.
The birthday girl's favorite color is purple. I went to Michael's and purchased some coordinating 12x12 purple paper.
I put the card on foam board, because it is so big. It will be easier to display at a birthday party that way.
I used a challenge at Sweet Sunday Sketch for the layout. I am pretty pleased with the result. I had my 8 yr old hold the card, to show it's true size.
