Little Princess' Birthday

Hello everybody :) So glad you stopped by today. This is my first post since before Thanksgiving. It feels like forever. I hope you had a great Holiday. Do you know that we didn't have the first turkey at any meal we attended? I don't know how this happened but when people were asking us after Thanksgiving if we were tired of turkey we could honestly say...NO! We never got the first one! Oh well, I'm sure we'll get plenty at Christmas. I'm going to be sure to do one myself :)
I took a break from Christmas cards to make a Birthday card for my niece who turns 1 Saturday! She is so sweet...the prettiest blue eyes you've ever seen! Pink and Brown are some of the cutest colors on her so I decided to make her Birthday card with those colors.


This is also my card for Crazy 4 Challenges this week (use punches).
I used pixie pink c/s as my base. The patterned paper is SU! sweet always (retired). The image is Sugar Nellie. I used watercolor pencils, blender pen and Bic MarkIt Markers to color her. I'm not too good at shading or blending yet...still workin' on that. The senitment is computer generated. I used choc. chip chalk on the sentiment and on corners of the image. Sheer chocolate ribbon on one punchie. I don't have the 2 slit ribbon punch so I used my 1/16" hole punch and 'made' my own slits to thread the ribbon through.
Thanks again for visiting and please leave a comment and let me know what you think :)
Until next time...
Blessings...

What a sweet card! I love pink and brown and polka dots! It's so sad you didn't get any turkey, but that made me laugh! I do hope you get some at Christmas:)
