That's My Daughter

Hi, I made this card last night. I was lucky enough to win this cute digi from Karber Digital Images.  She reminds me of my daughter--the pink glasses, purple crocs and that look when she knows she can eat a cupcake!  That's what she looked like when we ate lunch (just the two of us) at Genki Sushi the other week.  We were surprised that they had cupcakes and curly fries along with sushi.  Interesting combo, huh?

This digi is called Cupcake Leslie.  I put some stickles on her cupcake.

The flower is made from PTI felt and dies.  Buttons and the note paper die are also from PTI.

I'll be entering this card in 3 challenges this week.  That is a record for me.

There is a recipe challenge over at ACLP.  I had to use one flower, 2 designer papers and 3 buttons.  That's part of the reason it took me so long last night to make this card.  I just couldn't decide where to put those elements on the card.  I knew I wanted to use the papers I picked.  I decided to just use a strip of the cupcake paper on the bottom of the note paper die.  The hardest was deciding where to put the flower and buttons but finally I placed them in the corner along with the scalloped corner to try to balance everything out.

Color Me Copics also has a straight hair tutorial.  And I can honestly say that I watched the video.  It was so informative.  I should watch the videos more often.  So I tried the technique on this digi since she has such a big hair space.  I'm not sure if the contrast shows much.  I only have 3 brown copic pens.  I have to practice this more.

I'll also enter this in the Karber Challenge Girl Card.

I made this card to give to my daughter on her birthday but she already caught a peek of it this morning.  It's hard to hide things from your kids when they start getting older.  Must go now.  Thanks for reading!
