Birthday Girl



Shame on me! My darling little {new} 6-year-old ever so sweetly and gently reminded me that I hadn't yet made her birthday card, as I had promised way back at the beginning of the month. It's just like the cobbler's kids having no shoes :)

My Balloon from the new Pure Innocence line by My Favorite Things was perfect for her card. (No surprise, those darling Pure Innocence images have sold like hotcakes. Two are still in stock, including this one, and those that are out of stock will be back soon!) I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, clear embossed, and colored with Copic markers. I stamped the image a second time, and popped up part of it to add some dimension. Okay, who am I kidding? I stamped the second image because I needed a do-over on her face, but I didn't want to color the whole thing again and sponge the background again :) While I was attaching the popped up layer, I thought it would be cute to add a little hand-drawn ruffle at the bottom. The layout is this week's Sketch For You To Try.




Stamps: Pure Innocence - My Balloon (My Favorite Things)
Paper: Papertrey Vintage Cream, Stampin' Up Dusty Durango, My Mind's Eye Be-Loved dp
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, SU Sage Shadow
Accessories: Copic markers, clear glitter, SU ribbon, Papertrey button, May Arts ivory burlap string, dimensionals, EK Success border punch

This is so sweet!! Don't you hate it when the card is almost done and you messed something up? Amy, I have done the same thing or added and emblishment to cover a mistake. If you look at my last post I forgot to color her eyes and the bottons on her coat. At least I cought it before I gave it to someone! Right??

Why do I always gasp when I see your cards???? Must be because they are always so beautiful! Amy, this is wonderful. I love that little image and your colours are fabulous. Great work with that pretty bow. I love all of your wonderful cards, but this sweet little one has got to be one of my favourites, Jo x

I'm just continually blown away by your talent, Amy! I'm looking at this card and thinking I would never think of using red and green (except Christmas of course) but this is perfect. I love the image and went to check it out, but it's a bit pricey for my budget this month. TFS!
