A Working Girls Birthday Card

Happy Weekend Everyone!
I'm busy, busy creating cards for next week's craft show at the local High School and thought I'd share one with you today that I truly enjoyed creating.  
I love all my DT work and special orders, but sometimes it's just fun to design something out of your own head!  No sketch ... no theme ... no special colors ... just ME pulling pieces together and turning it into a card.  THAT is what I have for you today!

Inside View
As always, the cards I have requested most are birthday cards.  Specifically card for the 'ladies'.  Since I'm in need of so many, I turned to my wonderful design papers for inspiration.  Graphic45 has some amazing images/papers that make a quick and fabulous card.  So, that was the direction I went with today.  The paper pack I used today is Graphic45 'Domestic Goddess.

Now let's see if I can find some fun challenges to share my card in:
 PDE Linky Party - Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge - Anything Goes
Julia Spiri Challenge - Use something Old (Graphic45 paper circa 2009)

Well that's it for me today! 
Now I really must get ready for those 150 Halloweeners I'm expecting this evening!  Gosh ... I sure hope I have enough candy!   OH!  And don't forget to TURN YOUR CLOCKS BACK tonight!!
As always . . .

Papers:  White cs, Graphic45 'Domestic Goddess' dp
Accessories:  Fiskars swivel craft knife, Baker's Twine, Pop dots, Cheery Lynn Designs 'Happy' and 'Birthday' dies
