Happy Birthday Kerry- Card #1


I've never actually met Kerry, but she has been a cyber-friend for a number of years now. She invited me to join an online swap group when she started it, and we've gotten to know each other through the group.
Her birthday is coming up, and so for her weekly blog challenge (check it out if you want to play), she asked us to make:
**A Birthday Card
**With the color Purple
**And Glitter
All of her favorite things :). So this is for you Kerry!
I have to tell you, while I do like glitter (I even bought some in my last order), I really, really do not like working with it. It's ends up on everything, including me!
I made 2 cards for this challenge, but since I have a busy few days ahead of me and may not be able to make anything new, I am not going to post the 2nd card until tomorrow.
All Supplies SU:
Sets: Polks Dots and Paisley, Happy Everything
Cardstock: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilace, White
Ink: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, Gable Green
Accessories: Sizzix Folder (non-SU), ribbon
