Happy Belated Birthday Katie!

As they saying goes, better late than never.  I was so disappointed when I realized I missed my niece, Katie's birthday a couple of weeks ago.  Fortunately, she didn't seem too worried about it, but I wanted to make sure we quickly got her a gift.  I made up this bright cheery card using a PTI Sun Flower set that they gave to us for spending over $100 at Stamp-a-Faire.  Of course, I (along with many others :) couldn't pass it up.  It is so versatile...much more than a sunflower and I thought this would make a bright, cheery card for Katie's 7th birthday. 

Here's Katie leading her cousins at a little sing a long at our house a few weeks ago!  From left to right:  Ella, Ally, Katie and Marcel (he was never far from the microphone...even if he didn't know the words).

LOVE that rock and roll of the colours (and the cousins!! I always laugh when that song comes on now!) Do you remember when we thought you wouldn't have enough on your order for that set? You sure made that up in a hurry!! And then my MC was red flagged? Good times! Off to change our address :( I think I've been procrastinating because it's more emotional than I thought...but the new house is worth it! It all looks pink now with the insulation...I will take more pics for sure :) Hope it's still sunny and hot there! hugs :)

What a beautiful card! I love how you cut the mat stack layer in half for the sentiment; gives it a whole other look. Also the placement and inking of the sunflowers is just about perfect. Lynn, you rock!
