Happy Birthday Kayla!

So before I could make this card for Kayla, I had to figure out what I could do so that it would match the handy box I was going to make to put her CD in. First, her favorite color is orange. I have to be honest and say I wasn't in the mood for that kind of challenge. I don't even have orange stuff. You know me, I fear that color. I thought some bright patterned paper would work for both things, so I broke out the polka dots. I love this paper. Now, she's turning 10, so finding an image that she wouldn't think is babyish was also a challenge. But Tia knows her inside and out and approved of the Huggabugg, so we had a winner. The rest of it just came together. I didn't want that 'Happy Birthday' to feel lonely down there, so I stuck some pearls underneath and colored them with my awesome Copics. I do occasionally make cards without them, but that's not nearly as much fun!

I put her box together, made sure it matched, and sent them off with Tia to Kayla's birthday party. I've had this template for a while, but never had a chance to use it until now. It was so easy it's ridiculous. I love these things!

Yes, that's a Jonas Brothers CD peeking out from inside the box. I just wanted you to see how it opens. I'm so bad at photographing these things, but you get the idea. The ribbons hold it closed and you just slide it to open the box. Easy peasy.

Omigosh, how cute is that? Love the image, love the polka dots, love the pink pearls. And a matching CD box? Way cool. But really, her favorite color is orange? Odd choice for a cute little girl. She will love this, tho.
