A Birthday Wish for Allie

The new Can You Digi It? Challenge is called Button It Up. I needed to make a birthday card for my youngest daughter Allie. She will be 17 today. She loves the beach so I decided to go with a beach theme and use the ReviDevi Sail Away With Us Lighthouse. I also used a few other items from the Can You Digi It? store including a button from the My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up pins and buttons set and the My Favorite Things Die-namics Mini Rolled Roses die. These rolled roses were so fun to make after I watched this video tutorial - before the tutorial they were not so much fun - LOL! After you get the hang of them, you can make them super quickly.

Other supplies used:
Netting from a Babybel Cheese Package
A little crab sent by a friend
SU! cardstock
Hobby Lobby designer papers
Copic Markers
SU! Kraft Ink (for sponging on the edges)

Dig out your buttons and come play in the Can You Digi It? Challenge - you could win a $10 store certificate and the store has some amazing things.

Hugz to all and Happy Birthday to Allie!!!!

  6. Nancy, your card is so special for your daughter.
    Love the beach scene you created. My granddaughter

    will lose her to warm climates and the ocean!!
