Happy Birthday Niece

Hi Everyone!  I'm back to share a birthday card.  I have 10 nieces and 3 nephews so I make lots of birthday cards.  I just finished up a card for one of my nieces who had a birthday this past weekend.

I decided to use the cute little Party Girl image from Lili of the Valley for my card.  LOTV makes such cute little kid stamps!  The sentiment is from the For Her Sentiment set.  I really like these seals because you can customize the middle with whatever you are needing for the particular card.  Most LOTV stamps are rubber, but the sentiments are clear so you can easily see where you are stamping to add the stamping in the middle.

I colored the image with copic markers (listed below).  After adding the grass, I masked the image so I could spray the background with my air compressor and a copic marker.  It's kind of light so it doesn't show up well in the photos, but it is a light blue.

I added stardust stickles to the flowers (from Wild Orchid Crafts) to give them a little sparkle.

I'm playing along with the current LOTV challenge which is Pretty in Pink and I'm also playing along with the current Wild Orchid Crafts challenge which is Birthday Party.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great rest of the week!
Niki :)

Amazing! One of the best cards I have ever seen. I loved the colors used. I have only one niece whom I love a lot and I have also made such cards and crafts for her. This year she will be 6 and I am throwing a party for her in one of the Seattle venues.
