Hip, hip hooray! I'm a Celebrate the Occasion DT member!

Hi everyone!

I'm super ecstatic to announce that I've been selected as a Celebrate the Occasion design team member! I recently discovered this challenge blog and I absolutely LOVE it! Usually cards are exchanged during special occasions, and with the little amount of time that I have to craft, I usually only create cards for the special dates such as: birthdays, holidays, weddings, graduation, etc. This blog has challenges every week, and you have a chance to be entered into the drawing for a prize! Isn't that fabulous?! If you haven't been to their blog already, make sure to check it out here! I'll be posting projects for Celebrate the Occasion bi-weekly, so make sure to tune back in! For the design team call, we were asked to submit birthday projects that had never been posted before. My little cousin's birthday is in August, so I decided to get a head-start on her birthday card - I got her a cute Hello Kitty colouring book along with some other goodies so I decided to create a Hello Kitty card to go along with it! Enjoy!

The base of this card is 5 x 5. This is the first time I've used my Hello Kitty Greetings Cartridge - I didn't enjoy how this cart layered, but my Hello Kitty did turn out real cute! I used an action wobble to attach my cute little Hello Kitty! :)
