A birthday card for another little gal

At least one weekend each month is a birthday party that my olderst "has" to attend. It feels like it will be a very long year if every single one of the pals at day card shall have a party. I am not much of a party gal myself and kind of get stressed of just thinking about it. :) Still I can't refuse him to go to the parties can I? He loves it. And when he very polite asks me if I can make his friend a card, it's just to get started.

This is what I made for his sweet and very cute friend Elsa. They have always (can you say that about five year olds?) been very good friends and played great together. I used a Hänglar & Stänglar image that I have had for quite a while now. Coloured her with promarkers in quite bright versions of pastels. Paired her up with dp from Kaiser Craft's "Bubble gum line" (totally adore those papers). A few pops of card candy here and there. Pearls and some poppy flowers from Wild Orchid craft. As I was very tired when I made the card, I kind of flipped my back ground paper the wrong way. Should have had the cheerful flowers out and the pink in, but hey. Stranger things has happend. :) In the end with the tag made with a magnolia die and some ribbon it took away some of the pink parts so it doesn't feel to be that much.

I even took the time to decorate the inside of the card. With a "five", congrats (grattis) in swedish, his friends name and of course who it was from. :)

Now it's dinner time. I wish you all the best for the day and here I leave you with love n hugs

Ett jättehärligt, färgglatt kort Marie!
Vilken ära att du får göra sonens kort, här har det bara hänt en gång - men det är klart, jag har ju tonåringar, och de är inte mammas största scrapfans direkt ;)

Hi Marie, hope you're well!! Glad I'm not the only one who makes a card and when it's finishes realizes I should have done something different.
Love those stunning papers and colour combination and your little hAnglar girl is adorable, great colouring!!
