Happy Birthday, Ericka!

I made this card for one of my best friends and crafting buddies, Ericka. She's been in Peru for over a month, so this card will be waiting for her when she comes back to the USA at the end of this month. I LOVED the colors this week for Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #48. The colors this week were: chocolate chip, kiwi kiss, baja breeze, and whisper white

Several of Kristina's Year in Cards class videos were used as inspiration for the making of this card (first one & second one).

I usually don't decorate the inside of a card, but I did this time.

Have a good one! Thanks for looking.
