Happy Birthday!

My niece, Elizabeth, celebrates her 17th birthday this weekend. During Christmas, she said quietly (but I overhead her :)), "Why does everyone buy me pink?" I didn't know that she really doesn't like pink. And...she is a super polite girl so I had to chuckle. She never spoke up before because she's very polite. So this is her card. Green is her favorite color...no more pink for Elizabeth! Happy Birthday Elizabeth!

I'm entering this in the current PaperSmooches Spark Challenge. I love the colors in this inspiration photo. Beautiful!

Great take on the challenge! I love how you used the twine on the banners. And what a cute story about her not liking pink hehe. I'm sure she'll love this card!

Lynn I love this card. The offset banner with the twine is wonderful. My daughter has never been a pink girl. This is her kind of card.

So funny! I used to hate pink, but now, it's one of my favorite colors. Your card is absolutely perfect for Miss Elizabeth! LOVE that banner!

That banner rocks! I love how you knotted the twine and the little stars behind the sentiment are so sweet! I lost that sentiment stamp and miss it so much!
