WWC126 - Fiona's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge - Birthday Girl

Update: My card was chosen as Penny's Choice:  Beautiful use of new In Colours and Birthday sets on side-step card. Inspiring.    Thank you Penny!  Proudly displaying my badge

It has been a long time since I have been able to upload any pictures to my DBWS but it seems, fingers crossed, that a solution has finally been found!!!!

For the challenge at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week, Fiona wanted "us to play with some of our "girlie" stuff, especially the bling and the pretty feminine colours. "

By the way you must visit their blog and see the new banner!!! So cool.

Here's the card I want to enter for this challenge:

That little girl is so sweet. This card was part of my class and the ladies really loved it. It is a special fold - side step - and while there were some "measurement challenges" with the first class I finally figured out where I went wrong and able to fix the error for the evening class, thanks to the patience of the afternoon ladies!

Here's the inside of the card:

Thank you so much for stopping by and having a peek at my card. So happy that I was finally able to find the reason why I had not been able to upload any photos lately (issues with some automatic updates! grrr....). I was ready to cancel my subscription!

Let me know what you think of my card. I always love to read your comments and suggestions.  Thanks so much and don't forget to visit the blog and see all the other entries and wonderful work of the Design Team.


Oh my, Louise, what a gorgeous card you've created using that new Birthday Delivery Bundle! You really jumped in with both feet to make this card feminine! I love the Fresh Fig base. It has such depth of colour, doesn't it? The embossed Powder Pink panels are the perfect contrast. So sweet, especially that cupcake. Finishing up the inside with the sentiments and candle---great touch. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Wow Louise, I wondered why I hadn't seen any posts from you recently. I'm so happy that your techy problems have been resolved and you could join us for Fiona's Feminine Anything Goes challenge at the Watercooler this week. What a terrific card inside and out. Love these step cards and your colour combo and mashup of Birthday Friends and Cupcake Cutouts is just perfect for a girly special day. Well done!

Heidi thank you so much for your lovely comment! I was very pleased how it turned out I must say. Now if only I can figure out how to read measurements on the trimmer and on a ruler I'll be fine.....LOL

Thanks so much Penny. Yes computers can be your best friend and your worst nightmare at times. An automatic update had disabled the FlashPlayer...... but now all seems working fine. Thank you for such a very nice comment. Absolutely love that Birthday suite.

That little girl is so cute - and looks like she just can't wait to tear into that yummy cupcake. And that's an amazing fancy fold! Thanks for joining us this week at Watercooler Wednesday.

Thank you Gail. Really love those two bundles with matching dies as I am not too much of a fussy cutter!
