This week's theme for The Pixie Cottage challenge is Big on Birthdays. There's also a great sketch to follow, and as always you can follow the sketch, the theme, or both. I went with both. Again. :) This card was made for a friend's daughter, who loves ballet. I used the cute digi stamp Bellini (love the bows on her trunk!) by Artish, available at Michelle's Scrapbooking. I colored the image with Copics, rounded the corners and inked with Colorbox Queues. The little "presents" were made with scraps and the "ribbon" is a skinny strip cut with deckle edge scissors and covered with glitter. The bows were cut with my Cricut and glittered as well. My friend is French, so I thought the birthday sentiment in French was fitting. She said to use lots of pinks, purples and blues. Definitely got all that covered. Can't help but think of Dr. Suess when I look at this card. :)
