Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

A couple of weeks ago it was my Great Granddaughter's 8th Birthday, and my Daughter wanted a card to go with her present which was a Fit Bit.
I asked what colour Fit Bit she had bought her and it was purple so this is the card I made her.

I must say my Great Granddaughter Faye loved it, and thought it was brilliant to have a card the same as her present.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I made the backing paper from the photo of the Fit Bit, and my 3D Decoupage CD which makes backing paper.
Just added some sequins, and a lovely bow made by Wendy to the card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny
I love a bit of purple and this is a fantastically personalised card.
Must look up these Fit Bit things as I thought they were just an exercise & pulse thingy.
Best wishes.

Brilliant idea to match the card to the fitbit colour.
Bet she was delighted with both the fitbit and the card.

You are so lucky to get the 8x8 cards over there. Even if we could get the heavy weight paper to make the 8x8 size ourselves, it is costly to mail them...but I would like to make them for those hand delivered cards.
