I get to make my first post on the Great Impressions Challenge Blog today!   I am working with some very talented ladies!  While my card does not fit the challenge for this month I am here to remind you about our challenge.  I do hope you will pop over and check it out.

This card was made for a very special niece of mine.  With her fave colors being pink and black, I had to make the card that way for her.  She is also a master cupcake maker.  When I saw the Elegant Cupcake (D413) and Someone Like You (H257) stamps I had to use them for her.  I hope she likes it.

Please pop over to the GI challenge and join us this month.  The prize is so adorable!

Thanks so much for visiting me and have a blessed day!

Love the cute and girly design of your card. Thank you for linking with us at Word Art Wednesday. Our current challenge is still ongoing and we would love to have you participate again. I would like to share this passage from the Bible coming from Hebrews 6:11-12 which says, "We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you hope for may be fully realized. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised." Have a blessed week.
