"I am an Adult" Birthday

Hello Crafty Friends,
My son returned to college today, so we have been busy this weekend getting him ready to go. We took him out to eat yesterday to Red Lobster. Can you believe my children (18 and 14 years old) have NEVER been there?!?! My hubby likes to fish, but he will not eat it and my favorite restaurant is actually Olive Garden. My son decided on ordering chicken after much deliberation and my daughter said she only liked the dessert (she said she doesn't want to go back). Well, I guess I will have to find a friend to go with me next time since my food was delicious. 
Here is a new card I created at the request of a co-worker.
 She asked for pink camo, but I could not find any (If anyone knows where I can get some for future projects, please let me know.). I decided to emboss and use army green to get a similar effect.
 This is 3Girl JAM ribbon ~ Seasons Bundle. I used the bow maker from Creative Cutter Room to make my triple bow.
pink, white, and army green card stock
Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge
Paper Studio embossing folder
green pearls
pink button
pink embroidery floss
This is going to be a busy week for me. I hope you enjoy your week and find time to craft.
Stay Creative,

  23. Brilliant idea to emboss to get the camo effect! I like digital papers then I print them out myself- and sometimes I even just do a google image search for what I'm looking for and print it out that way. I did see some pink camo paper at Michaels a few weeks ago.
    Thanks for linking up with 3 Girl JAM!
