Stella's Birthday

Sometimes cards just fall into place as this one did; I had no trouble with it !!!  Even the bow turned with the first attempt (and this is unusual but probably due to an easy bow maker I have started to use).  I created the card following a few rules  I have observed from watching my card making buddy Dawn. They are as follows:
  • when in doubt use a black border
  • vivid colour is good
  • any kind of bows are nice
  • use crystal effects
  • humor never hurts
  • makes things dimensional (Stella's party hat-right side)
Thanks bunches Dawn!
