But first, here's a little something from me about Jessica.....

I met Jessica on FaceBook in a blog hop group.  I love how she opens up her craftiness to others!!!  She and I also share a love of the color purple and Disney.  I decided to make my card in purple for her!

So, here is what I created for her:

I love making window card with my Gypsy.  I also love personalizing cards - so it just made sense to create a 34th birthday card for Jessica!!!  Hallmark doesn't make 34th Birthday cards - but I do!!! 

I started with this card base from Don Juan and sized it to 4 inches.  

The numbers are from Sweet Treats and are sized to 2.29 inches.  Once I got them sized, I copied and pasted another set onto my mat.  

I grouped and welded the numbers inside the window opening.

I cut out the card base in white cardstock.  

I moved the card to the left so the front half only was on the mat and used the chevron paper from Mambi Cards pack to cut out the front side of the card.

I cut out the numbers and the sentiment in purple cardstock.  I did not use the sentiment.

I adhered the patterned paper to the front of the card and then I adhered the numbers on the card.

I used orange and yellow stickles to create the flames on the candles.  I tied some purple twine on the left side of the card.

Window cards are fun to make and you can weld just about anything inside the window!!

What would you weld inside the window?

Now, its time to go on to Pam's Blog

Here is the lineup in case you get lost along the way!

Thank you all so much for hopping along with us!
