A gift for you!

Today's card is a birthday card for my niece. I know I posted one last week, but after visiting my mom in FL, she told me Devon didn't like fairies - it's her sister that does....so I felt the need to make her another card!!

So, I grabbed my newer Hero Arts set and stamped out this little girl and colored her with prisma pencils and gamsol. I used my Nesties scallop oval and sponged around in green. I stamped the bag that comes with the set, cut it out and popped it up. I had originally thought to stuff some $$ in the bag, but I'd have to really fold it up tight - so, I just made my own handle with ribbon and put it next to her.
The paper is from American Crafts "Letterbox" collection. You can BARELY see the MFT sentiment on the upper right hand corner: "A Gift for You"...why won't I learn it's hard to stamp on patterned paper!!!
On the inside, I made a little pocket for her "gift" and used a PTI sentiment inside.


Thanks for stopping by!
