A swimmingly good birthday!

I won this wee stamp from CC Designs aaages ago and don't think I've ever inked her up!  Oops!  I wish the sparkle had shown up in my photo ... I added glitter to her flippers, snorkel and glasses, and the sentiment and stars are sparkly too :)  I also used another couple of oldies ... my dotty embossing folder and my Tim Holtz edge die.

Layout inspired by the photo over at The Cutting Edge #6

  7. Aha....just as I thought. My comment did not publish on this card. I made myself a note to come back and check.

    The card is just the cutest and reminds me so much of my granddaughter. Does she ever love the water! Love those flippers.

    Your embossing folder looks like bubbles of water...so perfect for this image.
