“Necessity is the mother of invention” – this old English proverb inspired my card. I needed more birthday cards and there was a great sketch that caught my eye. I decided that the Candy Dots with the Pool Party banner lent themselves better to a “boy” card. The bow gave the card on the left an instant “girl” vibe, but I tried to keep the colors neutral for the not-so-girly girl in your life.
