This final inspiration:
What stood out for me on this one was the rounded sentiment over the the focal image. This inspiration resulted in the birthday card I'm going to give my daughter, whose birthday is next Monday.
I'm so happy with this card! I think the colours, sparkles and clean layout are the perfect mix of sophistication and fun for a nine year old. I can't wait to give it to her!
