Celebrate! --PPA211

July 12, 2014

How did it get to be July 12!!!  We have been in a whirlwind the last few days.  Miss Addison and Miss Victoria are here for a few days and on top of that our new GRAND daughter, Maggie Jean arrived yesterday morning.  She is a beautiful addition to our family!  

I have been working on my card for the last few days for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.  With a 5 and 2 year old under foot, it had to be created in stages.  Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy look so amazing together.  My card is for a very dear lady that will be turning 90 this week.  She is my friend's aunt, but I have always called her my Aunt Polly, too!  I wanted to created something very special for her.  This is my first attempt at a six sided card.  I used this tutorial by Dawn Griffith as a guide for my card.  I used the regular card stock and it is a rather thick card.  I added a lot of dimensionals and I will have to send this card in a padded envelope, but it was so important to me that it be very unique for such a FABULOUS woman!  

The ribbon is strictly to hold the card together and has to be removed to open it!
