To celebrate Whitney's birthday I created........ a birthday card purrfect for a 16 year old that loves Skittles!!! I found a skittles jpg and made my own paper which was cut a bit smaller to fit on my lime green background. The “16” and shadow were created in Make the Cut. Ribbon and bow are from my “collection” drawer!!!

Whitney also loves God and I wanted to use my embroidery machine to make her a cross that is a dark purple but looks darker right now as it is not quite dry from dampening to remove the water soluble stabilizer.

Now you are on your way to the next party stop to see Angie’s card!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Birthday Whitney! Here is the complete line-up in case you get lost with all the streamers and balloons!!!

  1. Oh how I love this! You ladies are so creative :) Thank You Lynne for being part of Whitney's "Special" Birthday Hop ~
    I love ya!

  2. What a fun card and I love the cross you made as well.

  3. That's a beautiful cross you made for Whitney -- extra special, made with love, in His name for a blessing from Heaven. Your card is clever too -- I used Skittles as well in mine, but had to send the candy otherwise I'd eat it (nom, nom, nom). Ohhhh, to once again have the metabolism of a 16-year old!!

    Have a wonderful day!
