Flower Pot Fred

OMG, I'm soooo happy it is Saturday today!!! I'm excited to share that my card today is being featured on the Stamps R Us Challenge Blog for the create a child's birthday card challenge.  I had lots and lots of fun creating this card!  Flower Pot Fred is another clown acrylic stamp set from KLM Designs.  I tried to go with a masculine theme for Fred but he was just too cute and I ended up with more of a girly card, oh well! 

The layout was inspired by The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #69.  The patterned paper is from a Roam Paper Pad by K&Company that I've had for several years now.  I used brown cardstock from Bazzill and So Saffron from Stampin' Up. 

The gorgeous strip down the side was die cut from Wild Wasabi using the Fleur De Lis Borderabilities die.  To embellish the card I added some Wild Wasabi Grosgrain Ribbon, paper flowers and pretty dew drops.

Hope you have a fabulous day!
