Happy Birthday Anna!

Last weekend was my niece's first birthday, and I was lucky enough to take a few days off to go visit with her and her family. Sorry for the lack of posts this week - I am still recovering from the 5 hour (each way, no less) car ride.

Do you like the card I made for little Anna? She, of course, could care less, and was much more interested in the presents, but her mommy seemed to like it.

I decided to play along with the Roses on Paper challenge #13 - using pink, yellow, and green on your card, since the colors were perfect for a project for a little girl. If you want to play along, you need to use a Magnolia, Alota, Sarah Kay, Rachelle Anne Miller, or the Greeting Farm stamp.

For my card, I used the sweet girl with doll image by Alota. Isn't she a cutie? I purchased her a while ago for the express purpose of using her on some projects for Anna. She was colored in with Copic Markers, and then was accented with a white gel pen. I added Copic atyou Spica in clear to her shirt and hair bows for a bit of sparkle, but it doesn't show all that well in the photo.
