Alexa Party Time

Is this not CUTE?

I was so happy with it! It was for Alexa’s friends birthday party-her name is Allyson. She just turned 9, and I thought Alexa’s set would be PERFECT!!!!!

The colors were inspired by the wrapping paper and bag I purchased at Target-they were Orchid and Gable Green.

I wanted to add some more color and a little interest.

I remembered this StranoRibbon I had (one of my fav. stripped ones called Hazel) . I LOVE how its attached, and gives it some added interest.

It also helped me expand my color pallet. I always find if you stick with 2 main colors, then add some coordinating patterned paper or ribbon, will easily help guide you to subtly add some other great coordinating colors, without over-doing it.

Alexa’s set is perfect for ANY fun and funky combo 😀

The sentiment is a sneak peek at a UPCOMING-New Release by Lizzie Anne (sorry but it was VITAL to the perfect touch for this card, so TRY to forget you saw it yet! It will be a must have BTW!) that coordinated and added just the right words and size needed.

I also used a flower punch by EK Success (just like the SU! one), and the bloom dots embossing folder-which I also LOVE.

I had to add an initial too-so used my cuttlebug Red Tag Alpha, and some dazzling diamonds. Gotta have some BLING!!!!!

Well, thats it for today. Tomorrow I get to take Amber and some classmate’s of her to the Circus!!! I cannot wait.

Of, course now that I learned to pre-post I will have some eye candy for you before I go.

I have some happy mail that Im hoping will greet me when I get home 😀

Enjoy the day-
