"Special Card" &"It's A Great Time to Celebrate" LO for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #191: Your Special Day

with a theme of "Special Day",
I thought of creating a handmade card
using loud colors and graffiti looking pattern papers.
I added a birthday LO of me with photo taken last April 2013's
birthday celebration.

I've previously created an LO a number of months ago in
all loud and graffiti like designed papers.
It didn't look so bad . . . though I felt really 
uncomfortable afterwards.

I thought of trying it out again on a handmade card.
So, here goes:

I was hoping I could whip up a wedding card but
it was to no avail despite the wonderful digital images
that came from Whoopsi Daisy.

So, I chose a much less muted digital image from
Whoopsi Daisy - a  shy bashful little girl digi image.
And the handmade card was finished!

Here's my birthday LO:
a hand with Echo Park's For the Record and
Little Girl papers & chipboards
 plus All About Scrapbooking embellishments.

Randomly drawn winner receives sheet of digi images
from Whoopsi Daisy.

the notebook with such "gusto".

the Dutch participant:

her notebook . . . waited for her note
