Birthday Girl

Today, I have a birthday card to share.
This sweet card uses a stamp from Tiddly Inks: Cute as a Bug. It has an adorable image that just seems perfect for mailing to a birthday girl who happens to live a further away.

I created the base of the card from Bazzill's Java (Orange Peel) cardstock, and used a scalloped edge die from Borders 2 by Paper Smooches. It created a neat post-like edge that's similar to the scallop around the image. The image is colored with watercolor pencils and a water brush.

The background papers are from Little Yellow Bicycle: Fern & Forest Girl paper pad. It's a very feminine paper pad, that's not too young or baby-ish at the same time.

The white space on the bottom of the card is blank so the sender can write in the girl's name. If there's one thing that really impresses kids, it's seeing their name on a card. It makes the card that much more special.

The inside of the card is pretty simple, using the parcels from the Cute as a bug set. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp's Sketchy Banner Greetings.
