Sweets for a Sweet Girl

I made this card back in August and forgot to share it with you.  It uses the really fun stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog called Sweet Scoops.  Unfortunately for the stamp set, it hadn't seen ink when I pulled it out for this card, but I know that my girls' friend, Savannah, deserves the sweetest blessings that life has to offer, and I thought she would think that this card was fun to receive for her 6th birthday.  The color combination was inspired by Shelli's (then current) Creative Challenge to use color combinations from the wonderful SU! Color Coach.  This color combination comes from the back of the Blushing Bride card, and includes Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso.  Love it!

I hope that you are having a fabulous day, and I am thrilled that you stopped by to visit my blog.  Thank you so much for your sweet comments - I truly do appreciate each one of them!!!
