A simple but sweet birthday card!


I have been wanting to make some simple birthday cards to keep in my box for those moments when I need a card for one of my daughter's friends...so here is the first one.

I wanted to use one of these new stamps from Little Claire's, as they are so cute. I coloured this cutie in with Promarkers and teamed her up with some new papers from Papermania's Back to Basics pad. I followed a sketch saved on my laptop which worked well with the image. I added some highlights with Stickles and the flower is from my stash. The ticket at the bottom is from Pink Gem Designs and has been inked with some lilac ink. Voila....a simple but sweet card for any birthday that comes our way lol.

I'd like to enter this into some challenges:
Totally Gorjuss: She is cuddly!
Creative Inspiration: Celebrate-it's a birthday card!
One Stitch at a Time: New-new stamp and new papers!
Crafty Pad: New-new stamp & new papers!
Pollycraft: Pastel Colours


Thanks for looking!
Hugs
