Happy Birthday Princess
So as I said I've been waiting to make this card - just other cards to make, things to do, blah blah. But today had to be the day because my sweet-pink-and-princess-anything-that-sparkles-loving-almost-4-year-old niece's birthday is next Sunday and I've got to get her gifts (and card!) in the mail. This is the youngest of all my many nieces and nephews and my sister's child. She is a special kid and deserves a special (pink-of-course) card. I hate to admit it but I bought the stamp set I used - Papertrey Ink Tiny Treats: Birthday primarily because I wanted that adorable little princess image (and in fact I have used the set for other cards already - so it's worked out quite nicely). And when deciding to purchase that set it was this card by Dawn McVey that sent me over the edge. All the little "2"'s - well and that adorable monkey - but the 2's stuck in my head and I thought I'd have to use that for this card - but using 4's ;-) .... which necessitated the purchase of the By the Numbers dies.... LOL. Okay so I used some Copics and Stampin Write markers as well as a Gelly Roll Clear Glitter pen for the little image. Other dies: the Limitless Layers Circles and the Mat Stack 5 and Mat Stack 5 Layerz. Oh yes - and the Swiss Dot Embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I should mention that I sort of edited the sentiment. I bent the Happy Birthday part so it was rounded/arc'd...?... and I just inked up the word Princess (the stamp actually says Princess Wishes).
All for now - enjoy your Mother's Day!
