It's my opinion that persons born in the last month of the year have it rough. (My little boy was welcomed into this world one day before Christmas). Here are a few things I've learned: Wrap birthday presents in birthday wrapping paper and Christmas presents in holiday paper. It's important to have a birthday cake on the 24th and sing happy birthday, no matter how busy you are this day. My most favorite holiday song will forever be Happy Birthday.
When I saw this gorgeous pointsettia image from Jane's Doodles, our awesome sponser this week for the CAS-Tastic Wednesday Challenge, I knew I was going to create a birthday card. Something special for those December birthday people. Super simple to create-I just printed it twice in colored ink, added filler color lightly with blender pens, cut and layered and added some gems in the center.
This weeks challenge is to be inspired by a card from one of the design team members:
You won't want to miss this challenge, as Jane has offered up some of her digital images and a set of her handmade buttons to one random participant!
