Mojo Monday ~ My little girl is turning 6

My daughter Alexis and apple of my eye, will be turning 6 this month.

Her birthday is right around Thanksgiving, so I pushed her "kids" birthday party up to this coming Saturday. When I saw this morning's mojo sketch, I saw THIS CARD in my head.. Have you ever done that? I just KNEW that I wanted to make THIS CARD and get a jump on the thank you's for the children who attend her party. However, it's a lot prettier than I saw in my head.. I LOVE THIS CARD!

I don't think the picture does it justice. Alexis is a very girly girl and likes anything with glitter. This morning, I feel truly inspired by my daughter and created this card for her to be able to send after the party...

I started with the greeting card kids stamp set.. I added a little cupcake to her "heart card" and yes, I cut it by hand. I added tiny self adhesive pearls to her dress and some vintage ribbon to tie it all together. I embossed with the vintage embossing folder from Stampin' Up!

I colored the dress with a blushing bride marker color, and used an aqua painter to move the color around the dress. I added some smootch to the every top of the dress, her hair and the cupcake to add a bit of shimmer.
What a delightful sketch this week. Thanks for the inspiration.

Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton
