Happy Birthday Carly!

Today is my niece's 5th birthday, and of course I had to make her a special card to celebrate. Carly looks a lot like New Year's Tilda, so that determined what image I was going to use for her card.

I wanted something pretty and girly for the background, so I sorted through my paper stash until I found this pretty designer paper by Making Memories called Box Flowers. I colored Tilda in with copic markers, basing my colors on those found in the DP (there is pink in there, honest). When I was finished coloring, Tilda was highlighted with a white gel pen, and carefully cut out with my paper snips.

Tilda needed something birthday related to sit on, but I couldn't come up with any stamps that were the right size, so I drew the cupcake by hand. The wrapper was colored with copic markers to match her outfit, and highlighted with white gel pen. I made the frosting with brown liquid applique, and added several colors of stickles for sprinkles. I then used pop-dots to make Tilda sit on the cupcake.

Do you think she will like it?
