First of all, Happy Birthday to your nine-year-old! They do grow up fast, don't they?

Second, love your card! It so pretty with all the challenge colors and I love the design! Great card once again!

Dana, this is such a perfect card for your sweet daughter! Don't they grow a little too fast? Right before our eyes but to the point that we don't even realize how the time is flying by until we have a reality check like a birthday! Cherish this time with her, my friend. Before you know it, she will know everything and want less to do with parents and more to do with her friends :[

Your card is unique and fun, just as I would expect from my ultra creative and talented friend, Dana! You always have such great meaning in your projects...if one just stops and really looks. Love that you added ledger paper and circled the 9...so subtle yet significant. Those gorgeous butterflies that you gave dimension with white ink are the perfect main focus to accompany your ruffled ribbon and the fun color palette! This turned out so beautifully, Dana! I'm sure your daughter will cheris it and I hope she hangs onto it forever :]

Have a great weekend, girly!
