Alexandra's Birthday card

I struggled with this card for aaaages today.  I still think it needs 'something' .... any ideas welcome!

This is for my wee niece who's already turning 6! Shocking how fast she's growing!  I've used this stamp from Eat Cake Graphics ... it kinda looks like her and their labrador pup (who's also growing at a terrible rate of knots!!)
1137-M Unselfishness (MMM-ice cream)
Coloured with watercolour pencils.
I also added a heart border as she's a wee Valentine's Day baby.
Sparkly silver 6 and little butterfly peel offs from stash.  Dienamics embroidered frame and wonky stitched circle dies.  Taylored Expressions heart border die.

Day 7 of the Daily Marker colouring month.


  1. Your card is so sweet. The only thing I can think of that might add a little something would be some pale pink sequins. I do think it's lovely the way it is, though.

  2. Such a cute card, I'm sure she will love it!!!

  3. This is so adorable! Love this image and your colouring is fabulous!

  4. I think it's perfect as it is. Sounds like you matched the image perfectly to the person, love it when you can manage to do that. Cara x
