A La Card Monkey Guest Artist

Last week I shared that I was selected as a "Monkey Princess" over at A La Card Monkey.  Well, one of the perks of winning a challenge is that I get to be a guest designer for this week.  Their challenge this week is a double one.  They have combined a great sketch along with a birthday theme.  You would think that's piece of cake, but do you know how long it's been since I made a birthday card?  I have been in Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween mode since August and switching gears just felt weird.  But once I got going it was smooth sailing.

I am loving the fresh and clean color combo of blushing bride, ivory, and baja breeze.  And to further bring those colors together I added a piece of pattern paper from Just Add Cake DSP.  The cool-awesome-adorable flower is brand spanking new product in the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog.  This new flower pack on page 18 includes PINK BLING!
