Cupcake girl

The night before we left Florida, I suddenly realized that my s-i-l's birthday was around the corner and I needed to dash off a card for her. Gee.... what design could I fall back on? Hmmm, maybe the one I've been using, ad nauseum? (No not really, hee hee.... just used an awful lot.... but like I said, it's so versatile that it compliments any paper type.) I've been hoarding this background paper for so long that I don't remember who makes it. But I love how it's busy enough to dispense with the need for a lot of embellishing. Just some cute little pink sparkly dots in four corners. Watercolor pencils added the softness to the popped up image. The cuteness of this Birthday Girl set by My Favorite Things just bumps up the "adorable" factor of this card. Kinda like playing with dolls again. *smile*

Hope your new year's resolutions are going well!

Cindy, if you were a genie, I'd ask for long legs like this girl! ;) I love it!
