springtime pixie birthday card by lauren bergold

being ageless and all, i'm not sure pixies celebrate their own birthdays, but i bet they enjoy sending cards to their human friends, so i've made a special SPRINGTIME PIXIE birthday card, from this month's kit of the same name:

this card was super-fast to pull together; in fact the layers of paper strips off to the left side were actually scraps and off-cuts from larger projects i made with the kit, that i just ran through a few pretty edge punches. my favorite part, however, is the sentiment, where i got just a little bit fancy!

i inked two of the chipboard frames from the kit in a soft blue, and then used a background stamp over top to get those pretty flourishes on there. then i added a clear sticker to the center, glued the bits together, and affixed them to the card with some foam tape. and there you have it: springtime for pixies...and birthdays, too! ♥

Kirsty's Note -
I think Pixie would love to keep this lovely pixie card to herself, and I don't blame her as this is a super sweet Pixie card, and I love the treatment to the Maya Road chipboard frame!
