Millie's 1st Birthday Card!

Its my youngest Granddaughter, Millie's, 1st Birthday on Monday so here is the card I have made her.  I am posting on the blog early as it fits a couple of challenges I want to enter.  My daughter, Sarah, knows not too look at my blog till after Monday so she doesn't get a sneak peak!

The stamp set I used for the cute bunny, the flowers and the patchwork squares were all free with a magazine ages ago!  There are other animals and an owl too included in the stamp set and they are all so cute!  Its the first time I have used it and I think I will be using it again soon.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.  I stamped everything with black Versafine and embossed with detail clear powder.  The colouring was done with various makes of alcohol marker then I fussy cut the flowers and squares out.  I cut three mats of coordinating design paper from a Lili of the Valley paper pad and adhered them to my pink card base.  The main image is edged with a pink alcohol marker and I glued on the die cut number one. After the main image, flowers and squares were glued to the card I just had to add some Clear Wink of Stella for sparkle and glossy accents to the rabbit's nose and the flower centres.  I love the patchwork stamp set - its just so cute and cool!  It makes it easy to come up with a super cute card!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

That's Crafty - All square
Pixie's Snippet's Playground - The flowers, squares and main image are all stamped on snippets of white card.
Penny Black and More - Add a Sentiment.
Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes

All these are awesome blogs, hop over and have a look!

Thank you so much for visiting me, I appreciate all your support so much! Take care. Christine  xxx

Oh, good grief, Chris, I can't believe that Millie is already a year old! It seems like just yesterday she was born! You have put so much tender love and care into making this sweet framable bunny birthday card! It's really precious, just like Millie, and a fabulous use of snippets!! Hugs, Darnell
