Happy Birthday, Lilly!

Merry Christmas, everyone!
 One more card before the end of the year...this one a birthday card for my 3-year old granddaughter, Lilly. Her birthday is December 25th...yes, she was born on Christmas day! In some ways that is so very special, to share a birthday with Jesus, but in other ways its not so nice, like getting presents only once a year. And the birthday celebration pretty much gets lost in all the other celebrations. My daughter, Emily, is thinking of celebrating Lilly's half-year birthday in the summer instead.

But here is a cute "little girl" card I made using a Daydream Designs image that I colored myself with my Spectrum Noir and Memento markers. I just love the adorable little princess all bundled up for playing in the snow! This picture shows all the sparkle I added (Stickles "Icicle").

And this picture shows the coloring just a bit better.
The edge punch I used is the Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" and the side edge is the back page of the card.
The background paper is a digital design from Daydream Designs called "Peppermints and Snowflakes" from the Sweet Warm Ups set. The little girl is from the Snowbaby Outline Digi set....and the snowballs too!

Oh, how precious, Sandie. This is adorable. She will love it...and I love the pinks and glitter. It's fantastic. The use of the paper is fabulous....what a sweet, happy card. Love it all!

This is such a beautiful card, Sandie. I love the pink color of course. The peppermint candy paper is just right with the coloring of the snowbaby.

I think a mid year birthday party is a fantastic idea! And this is a delightful card!
