Birthday Wishes

Today my sister-in-law Lisette is celebrating her birthday. I lifted this design from Betsy Veldman and this idea from Melissa Phillips, but mine didn't turn out as beautiful as theirs. I had a bit of a hard time with the Crate papers and was not really happy with the card. I didn't have time to start all over, because Lisette lives in Australia and I had to mail out the card to make sure it arrived in time.

I really like my new Quatrefoil cover plate from Papertrey Ink....

  1. Mooie kaarten Ingrid, vooral van de kaart voor Lisette ben ik helemaal weg...lekker girly! X

  2. Ik vind jouw kaart ook hartstikke mooi hoor:) Heel vrouwelijk met die vrolijke kleurtjes en de sjieke strik. Het ruitjespatroontje is ook prachtig!

  3. I think it turned out great Ingrid! I love your style - your choice of colors always appeals to me so much!

  4. Misschien inderdaad wat druk de bloemen op de achtergrond maar ik vind em even goed erg leuk. Je cupcake is te schattig :D

  5. Vind h'm ook tof, maar ik denk ook dat het door het drukke bloemetjes papier komt. De combinatie van beide is tof!
    Groetjes Cornelie

  6. My card looks fabulous, but I'll have to wait until January before I'll see it IRL as it hasn't arrived yet. xox
