Floral Hot Pepper Birthday Card – Little Red Wagon #680

I've got a new gig. I'm joining the awesome Girlfriend team over at the Little Red Wagon weekly challenge blog. Chrissy's chosen the challenge this week and it's Flower Power; dig out your blooms, come on over, and blossom with us!

This birthday card's hot pepper digi from QKR Stampede has definitely got her floral on (hope she took the thorns off that rose though). If you like humorous digis QKR Stampede is worth checking out; they have some very funny ones, e.g. this melting punny snowman (a past favorite).

The flowery paper is a digital piece from my scraps file; I have no idea where it's from. By the way, you might have noticed my cards are getting smaller, or well, maybe you haven't, because it's kind of hard to tell in a photo, but they have. If I make a smaller card I need less paper and can use up some of these smaller scraps I have lying around, which means less waste and money saved. Voila! I created a rounded sentiment with Annie BTN font to frame my digi. Embellishments are a no-brand border strip die-cut topped with a bit of ribbon and Violet Galaxy Nuvo Crystal Drops.
