Saturated Canary - Circus Trixie

Hello Folks,
Today is our Granddaughter Lauren's 9th birthday and we're going off to celebrate as soon as I finish here.    You'd think it was my birthday today I'm that happy.   I found out my card "Dandelion Girl" was listed as a favourite of the week on SCS General Stamping Talk Forum the week ending Mar. 11.  Thank you so much ladies.

This card I'm going to show you is Lauren's birthday card.  She loves dancing and this Krista Smith digital named "Circus Trixie" reminded me of her.  I think there is a little Cirque du Soliel in there too, don't you :)  It's also my favourite colour combination.

I needed to make a 1" deep box for this 6x6 card because of the rose. Usually my boxes are 3/4".

DP:  Making Memories Sabrina
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment:  Lily of the Valley
Diecut with Spellbinders Circles
Ribbon is MM Sabrina
Butterflies:  Martha Stewart punch  covered with Art Institute Glitter
Top of the box has a Making Memories Bravissimo Rosette

Hoping to enter into the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown  Clip it Up - Won Top 3
DYSU #63  Favourite Colour

Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs, Pat
