ABC DT Challenge

Well, today may be April 1st, but this is no April Fool's joke: It's time again for the ABC DT challenge! Yep- already ;-) So get your creative juices flowing because this month's challenge is sure to be a lot of fun since it is.... Anything Goes!!!!
That's right- you can create a card or project with a theme of whatever you want!

Here is the birthday card I created:

I wish you could see it up close in person, because there is a lot of dry embossing texture on it (maybe if you click on the photo to enlarge, you'll be able to see). Anyway, I love white on white with a splash of color, and the pretty paper from the Crafty Secrets Pastel paper pad provided exactly the amount of pattern and color I wanted.

I hope you will join us over at the ABC Toys & Crafts Blog for another awesome challenge. I can hardly wait to see what you come up with!

I am also entering this card into the following challenge:

Wishing you many blessings and a happy start to April!
