Cara's Turning 8

I was starting to make a birthday card for my daughter who is turning 15 and got stuck with not being able to find the right image.  I saw this and thought of my niece Cara who is turning 8 next month.  Glad to have the card done way ahead of time.  Pink is her fave color so I thought she would like this.

This image is from Saturated Canary.  It's a little baby doll named Ava. The presents are at Cuddly Buddly.  I colored them with Whisper Strokes and Stampin' Up markers then added some Glossy Accents.  The sketch is from Charisma Cardz.  

The papers come from Core' dinations, Bazzill and my Stash 'O Scraps.  I added some Stickles by Ranger to the black paper.  The inside sentiment is from Desert Diva.  The border punch is Martha Stewart and the die cut is Spellbinders.  Finally the ribbon on the balloon is from Darice.  

The inside is a pop up.  The directions for this can be found on my sister Rebecca's blog. She is amazingly talented.  She is teaching me all this.  Stop by and take a look.  You will definitely agree.

This is just adorable. Cara bo Bara will love it. I haven't even started mine for either girl yet. I think Cort might be jealous when she sees it.
