Birthday Girl!

Yes another birthday card - what can I say but birthdays in my family and friends seem to all come in clusters.

This is a card I made for my youngest cousin (yes the card says 6 - not 16 or 60!) - she is a very girlie girl and loves pink, fairies, sparkle etc... which therein lies the problem - I don't possess a lot of pink or fairies in any way shape or form - though I DO have sparkle. I think I went through all my stash to make this card. Hope you like what I came up with, especially as I am making a huge effort to use what I already have to make my cards rather than buying things I won't use.

The stickers are from PaperMania, the cardstock is DCWV - Nana's kids, Glitter stack and Brights stack, the Holographic stickers I altered with a pink overhead pen and the birthday greeting I wrote out with Sakura pink Souffle pen and then went over the top with a clear stardust pen. The little flower brads I got so long ago I don't know who made them but I did see them in Michael's recently.

I have to say the card is very much more SPARKLY than the picture shows - so I am hoping I have a happy little cousin on my hands after I give her the card and her present - a pink flamingo cuddly toy - shhhh don't spoil it! as her birthday isn't until tomorrow;-D.

I'm sure she will love the card, sparkly bits an all! Like you say, a photo is never as good as the real product itself.
