Hello everyone.  :)  I had a little bit of time to photo-edit some card pictures over the weekend, so I am happy to have something to share here on my blog!

The inspiration for this card began with the interesting patterned paper from Crate Paper, Open Book.  It looks like many circles all piled on top of one another.  Its festive feel lent itself well to a birthday card.  I wanted the card to look like a party, so I pulled out new-to-me Memory Box Scalloped Banners dies.

I added many small punched circles from white glitter paper, to mimic the pattern and to have a 'confetti' feel.  Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh are mixed in here, and a couple of Valentine's heart stickers, annnnndddd some Target Dollar Spot twine.

On Good Friday, my family and I attended a Passion play at a local church, where my coworker attends.  He produced the performance, and it was just wonderful.  So moving, so dramatic.  I could not keep the tears from flowing, thinking of the sacrifice our Lord made for us.

I hope your day is filled to the brim with blessings.

Your card does look like a party so you accomplished just what you set out to do. Very pretty and festive.

Passion plays are always so wonderful to attend at Easter and always very moving.

What a lovely card Colleen, the confetti is delightful! We have attended the Easter Vigil Mass for the last several years. It's on Saturday night and is just beautiful!

It looks like a party! So cute the way the circles seem to be spilling out of the paper. Clever idea, Colleen!
