Birthday Card

This card was made for my daughter using a couple of retired sets from Stampin Up (little girl and balloons). The clouds are from a CTMH stamp. The butterlies are from the Stampin Up sizzix beautiful wings die which I have placed a pearl in the center of the butterflies. The grass is from a TAC stamp set which I stamped in wild wasabi ink from SU and sponged around the bottom edge in the same ink color. The clouds and girl were masked and sponged with SU sky ink as well. I then cut the image out with my nestabilities and layed with another nestabilitie die. The balloons were stamped on different patterened papers and cut out. I then placed them on foam dots to add dimension. I adhered some white floss for the strings of the balloons and attached them to her hand, I added the button for a little added interest. The girls overalls and top were paper pieced and shaded with markers.

Thanks for looking.
