These are our NEW girls so if you can get a chance go and give then a big welcome. I'm sure they would be happy if you would leave then a really nice comment.

I guess it would be nice if I tell you a little about my card. Can you believe this?? These are stamped images!!! The Happy Birthday Stamp is from Stampabilities. Two little girls are from The Angel Company and the ground stamp is from Stampscapes. I drew the boards the little girl is sitting on. I tried to do some sewing around the card and used PC Provo Craft Tools Sew Crafty Mini with white thread. Used Judi Kins Diamond glaze for the water, I find that works really good with copic markers. I sponged the sky with my template with Brilliance ink "sky blue" and used some of the Brilliance Ink Ivy, lime, and green. Add three of the glitter dots. Some of my butterfly and flower ribbon.

Happy Birthday inside

I did make this card for someone special. So I did the inside. I do not do the inside of my card until I know who I'm giving them to. So I stamp some balloons. I'm sorry I do not remember who makes that stamp. The word stamp is done by Hero Arts. I colored the balloons with Copic Markers and added some Judi Kins Diamond glaze.

Happy Birthday Markers

These are all the colors I used. I thought it would be faster to take a picture of then. This way I do not have to write then all down. I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful week.
