Birthday Card for Kwerner's Color Inspiration #57

From Adriel:

My daughter, Kayla's 9th birthday is tomorrow. So I needed to make a birthday card and Kristina Werner has a color inspiration challenge on her blog right now! Woohoo!

The colors were a challenge... SO MANY! What I ended up doing was adhering thin strips of the different colors of cardstock onto a white piece of cardstock, side by side. I ran it through my Big Shot with the Hearts & Brackets die. The heart got dimensionalled to a 3-1/2" x 5" white cardstock base with the bottom corners rounded. I finished the card with a pink ribbon bow.

Anyway, wanted to share it with you! Hope you're having a great weekend! =)
