Happy Birthday, Little Lady

Hello my friends. It's Friday ... where has the week gone, eh?! Not that I'm complaining, because I'm so glad it's over. It has been a nightmare since Monday... there just aren't enough hours in a day to get things done...my way!

Enough complaining, here's a card I made at the crack of dawn today for our friend's daughter. She's 3 today and we'll be dropping by after work (hopefully before 9pm!) to give her a kiss, a pressie and this simple card. Honestly, at 4 am I didn't have the time nor energy for anything fiddly.


The background paper is by Raspberry Road. In keeping with simple theme, I stamped the greeting straight on to the dp using Memento Tuxedo Black. 

Here's a close-up of the image from WMS Half Pint Heroine set. I paper pieced her dress with some red polka-dot dp and  added some colour to her shoes, hair and bunny with SN and Promarkers. To frame the little lady, I used Spellbinders Labels 18,  WMS stamp in Rhubarb Stalk and lightly inked the edges with TH Barn Door.

For the flowers, I used Spellbinders Rose Accents Dies by Donna Salazar.

I decided to add some flowers on the inside too.
