Birthday Wishes

Happy Thursday!

I'm back with a fun birthday card I made for a very special young lady in my life. I don't want to say who because she will see it when I post it on Facebook. 

This young lady is a tom boy at heart - kinda like me when I was younger. Not afraid to get rough and tumble if she has to and will only wear a dress when she has to.  She loves hedgehogs and chocolate so I think the image I chose for her is perfect. 

After colouring up my stamp with alcohol markers, I cut it out with a stitched square die. The sentiment was stamped and cut out using a stitched oval die - I like the texture these dies add to an image. 

Some patterned paper from Photo Play was perfect for my layout and colour pallette. I love a little bling on my cards so this time I added some Stickles to the cupcake icing and some glossy accents to the cherry. Some twine and sparkly gumdrops finish off my card.
