Alexandra's birthday card

Ooops there's that brick stencil again ... I need to get this off my desk for a week or two ;)
This is hot off the press for my niece, I can't believe she's 7 already!  She's a Valentine's Day baby, so I usually try to include a little heart somewhere too :)

I don't think I've ever seen a pogo stick in real life, it must never have been a 'craze' over here!  Reckon Health & Safety would have a hard hat and elbow and knee pads on her now ;)

Tiddly Inks stamp - coloured with watercolour pencils, sparkle added to her dress and clear gloss to her pogo stick.  My '7' is cut from silver mirror card.


  1. Such a beautiful card design. Love the details and techniques. Ruby is just a cute doll. Thanks for your entry in our challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!

  2. What a soft and girly card. I love the pastel backgrounf and shiny silver letters. Thank you for joining us over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

  3. Nah...keep the brick stencil just where it is lady, it's such a great background!! I don't think I have ever seen a pogo stick either...dangerous things I would imagine. Bet Alex loves this card, it's gorgeous xx

  4. I do remember jumping on a pogo stick when I was a little girl. It was loads of fun, once you got the hang of it. Alex is going to love her card. It's so cute! BTW - I love that brick stencil, so it's fine by me if you use it on EVERY card. :)

  5. Beautiful Birthday card. Such a sweet image and I love how you added a little heart by the name. Thanks for playing with us at Pile it On. Hope you will join us again for the current "Monster or Fairy" Challenge. Keti (DT)
