Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!  It's cooled off quiet a bit over here and we enjoyed staying local for a sports event weekend.  My son, Noah had another awesome soccer game and today, we will be watching my son, Ryan's 1st Fall Baseball game of the season.  I did get to enjoy some crafting time and I wanted to share my card I've made for this week's Sunday inspiration.

Here is my card....

So I first want to share the card template I used. I was excited to run across this Splitcoast Stamper tutorial for a Modified Tri-Shutter Card. Now I have to admit that some of these new templates really overwhelm me and it usually takes me a few times to get something down.  But this card was super easy to follow and so much fun to make!  In the tutorial, it shows how it  can easily be laid flat and mailed.  Of course, I couldn't resist getting dimensional with this card! :)  However, I definitely plan to make some Halloween cards which will actually fit in an envelope for once! LOL  So back to my card...this features the cute Do Si Do Anya from The Greeting Farm!  Originally, I had thought of giving her a more "Western" or "Country" theme.  However, I really wanted to use her on this birthday card I was making and so excited with the way she came out!  She's so adorable!!!  I stamped cute Anya with my favorite Memento ink in Black Tuxedo and then colored her up with my copic sketch markers. The paper collection I used is a Kate Spade Collection called "Cambridge Court' by My Mind's Eye.  These are such gorgeous papers!  I paper pieced Anya's dress and bow with the DP and also added a sentiment from the paper collection as well.  I also added some layered Spellbinders behind her in Lacey Ovals Large.   All of my papers were edged with  Tim Holtz distress ink in Victorian Velvet.  I added some roses and cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Craft and some pink pearl bling from Recollections.

I'm entering this card in the following challenge: TGF Farm Fresh Friday-Paper Piecing
TGF Garden Variety-Blue Raspberry

Hope you all like my card and thanks so much for stopping by! :)
