Beautiful card for a beautiful girl!

Hi everyone!  I'm taking a small Halloween post break to bring you the card I made for my daughter on her recent birthday.  She is on her own in the big city of San Francisco and her dad and I could not be happier for her!
I wanted to create a card that would reflect her personality.  She is very on trend and loves art and I knew the simple beauty of paint splashed on a card would appeal to her. The 'Abstract Art' stamp set from My Favorite Things makes this look effortless.  All I had to do was to pick her favorite colors and the stamps did all the hard work! This may become my new fave stamp set- love it!
The inside has more paint splashes and a simple sentiment.  I wanted a lot of space to write a special message to her but even the biggest of spaces aren't enough room to express all of the love, joy, pride and happiness we have gotten from having her in our lives. Happy birthday sweetie! Love you!
***Now for a special message***
Speaking of my daughter... She is a wedding design associate at Minted. If you haven't heard of Minted already, they support independent designers by choosing their favorite designs from designers around the world, and these designers get a percentage of the sales from their designs.  They have all kinds of gorgeous stationary and paper products!
I'm proud to say that my daughter has submitted a few of her own designs for this year's wedding challenge!  If her designs get chosen, they will be on sale on the website, giving her recognition of her creativity (and a little spending money!). The best way to get her designs chosen is to like them and provide feedback with comments now and then vote on the designs at a later date (I'll let you know when).
Please view her designs at minted.com/designer/hkchaussee and like and comment on the ones you like! I know she will really appreciate it, and you may even find something that you want for your next event! Thanks so much!
