My Squigglefly Challenge 11 card

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for all the wonderful birthday wishes everyone sent me yesterday! I swear everyone wanted to feed me for my birthday this year! You know my friend took me to out for breakfast on Sunday for my birthday, then on Tuesday my former boss brought me lunch at work. Last night my husband fixed my favorite meal, my best friend (the same one who bought me breakfast) shows up with a box of baklava that she bought at a Greek bakery, and my sister sent over TWO cakes! One of them was a chocolate cake with white icing and one was a decadent ice cream cake! I know I don't look like I'm starving, so I must just look like I like food! LOL!

When my husband got the salad finished he carried it in to show me and I said "Let me get a picture to show my blog buddies" He posed for it

Yummy! Oh, the salad's looking good too! LOL!

Well I did finish the card I was working on for Squigglefly's 11th Challenge. The challenge is to create a non gender baby card using purple. Well I love purple and never turn down a chance to use it! Here's my card

(click to enlarge)

I printed out the Rocking Horse image and colored it with these copics

I cut it out with a circle nestabilities die and then I punched circles out of some purple and white designer paper and stuck them on the back all around to make my scallops. The card was embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder from Provo Craft. Doesn't that particular folder just always work for baby cards? My words were computer generated with a font called Kayleigh and I popped it up.
At the last minute I added a little bow. I don't think that makes it too girly since it's white. What do you think?

Squigglefly would love you to play along! Go here and link your creation to Mr. Linky!

New sentiments are now available at a great price of only 99 cents! There is one set of circle words that are great, and I love that they can be sized to fit any circle punch or die you might have! Go check them out, and while you're shopping remember that any animal image purchased in July will have half the proceeds go to the ASPCA to help animals. Don't forget to sign up for the rewards program too! For every $15.00 you spend you can pick a free image - even sets! It's free to join and your points never expire!

I hope you have a great day today, and thanks for looking!

The card is so adorable, Holly. As far as I'm concerned, those Swiss dots are suitable for *any* card -- I love those polka dots!

Nice of hubby to pose for the camera. I hope "salad only" was not your favorite meal. LOL

Hey - if you have any leftover ice cream cake, pack it well and send it to me pleeease!
