Sweet Card for a Sweet Girl

A friend of a friend has this sweet little girl. 

This sweet little girl is turning One! 

So I made a sweet little card for her.

I used my Cricut to cut the circle and the number one. The patterned paper I used has a little bit of shimmer to it on a couple of pieces.  I thought all of the patterned paper needed shimmer. So I spread the Stickles very thin. Hard to see but it's there. 

It's also on the Very Vanilla cardstock.  It wasn't planned that way.  But things happen. 

You know, like, touching Stickled patterned paper before it's dry.  Then touching the card.  Umm, yeah, it happens. I was tired and didn't want to make another card.

Hubby says I was cranky.  I don't know what would make him say that. 

But I wanted to get this card done. 

So I put some Stickles on a scrap piece of paper, then rubbed some of it off.  Then rubbed that scrap paper on the card.  I didn't want a lot on there.  Just a shimmer is all it needed. You should be able to see a little bit of it in the top picture, at the top of the card.

I like it when mistakes turn into something sweet. Don't you?
