Whimsical Birthday Wishes

I was starting to realize that I don't do many children's birthday cards. I don't know why, because I love the fun themes and images. When I saw this gorgeous carousel horse from The Rubber Cafe, I knew immediately that I needed to do a girl's birthday card.

I stamped the image onto a Spellbinders Lacey Square die cut. This is one of my favorite dies ever! I colored the image with Sakura Stardust pens and accented it with loose irridescent chunky glitter. If you didn't know, Stardust pens give you a beautiful glitter finish, so the whole image is sparkly.

I used Paper Accents cardstock and some glittered patterned paper from the "Homespun Chic" GCD collection by Melody Ross. The pink rosette ribbon is from Hobby Lobby's fabric department. I also used a Prima Marketing pearl and Papertrey Ink's sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages.

Thanks for taking a peek!
