Birthday Cutie

Happy Thursday everyone!  It's always nice to celebrate a birthday. Today we are celebrating with Katie, one of Julie Nutting's Prima Doll Stamps. I started this card with papers I ordered from Classy Cards 'N Such Online Store.  I used the Silver Metallic and Stardream Punch Metallic card stock to die cut the Scallop Polka Dot frame from Sizzix, punching one of each color. I also used the Silver for the card base and Stardream Onyx Metallic for the background. I then stamped Katie on a sheet of Xpress Blending card stock and colored her with Copic markers.  After mounting her on a sheet of printed paper, I trimmed her to fit the opening of the frame, and glued the paper inside the edge of the frame. I also die cut four corner adornments from the same die set and adhered them to the four corners of the card base.

To assemble the card, I used foam tape to adhere the frame unit to the card front, to give it more dimension. I also added some Prima flowers, some ribbon, and a happy birthday tag to the side of the frame.  I also added small pink rhinestones to the right of the image, and a tiny birthday hat to Katie's head. The birthday hat was made from one of Winnie & Walter's New stamp sets, "Rectangled &Triangled!

I am entering this birthday card in the Weekly Challenge at Classy Cards 'N Such -Birthday Wishes
