So...with all of the insanity (good!) in my life lately...I am a day delayed in posting the card that I made for my Darling Daughter for her 6th birthday which was yesterday.
My girl is sweet, silly, a little sassy sometimes. Her style is punky (as in Brewster), mix and match, ribbons and bows and beads, mismatched socks and sparkly shoes.
I wanted the card to directly reflect everything that she loves and that I love about her. So I of COURSE went straight for Tiddly Inks Image Rock N Rolla girl!
I printed her out twice, once on white stock and once again on pink (one of Kendall's favorite colors!) I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils, Copic and Prismacolor markers. I then paper pieced her skirt, adding black and hot pink glitter.
I trimmed her out and set her aside to dry.
My external sentiment panel is on white cardstock, stamped multiple times with the word 'giggle' from an older SU! sentiment pack, I edged distressed the stock and added the #6 with a transparent sticker. It was then time to add our beautiful roller skating girl which I adhered with 3-D foam adhesive.
My interior is cut from white cardstock and stamped with the words "Be Yourself" - which is all I ever want for my children.
She opened this and gasped...and brought it to school for show and tell on her birthday day.
I'm a blessed and happy Mummy.
Happy Birthday Sweet Angel!!
Awwwww, so sweet! Both the card and the story. :)
That is the reaction every mom wants...:)
And I love the sentiment...I am going to borrow it for one of my cards because it is exactly what i want for mine and for me. :)
You are definitely a treasure all in and of yourself. :)
This is adorable! I love the color, and the different color skates! Great job! Happy Birthday to your little girl!
