You’re 4

Hello!! It’s hard to believe that it’s the for another challenge over at Come and Get It!! Our theme this time is Cards For Kids, and we are sponsored by the generous PaperNest Dolls.

Our Badge

 I must confess, time got away on me, and this was a late make!!

You're 4

I used Ballerina Emma, and colored her up with my SN markers. Yesterday it was feeling very spring like here (today, not so much, with about 6″ of snow overnight), so I used soft pastel colors. I used scraps from 2 different paper collections, and cut the number 4 out with my Cricut. I used a die from Elizabeth Craft  for the bunting. Pink ribbon bows, some yellow flowers, a Brad and glitter glue pulled everything together, ready for the fussy cut image to dance onto the card :)

I’d like to enter this card in the following challenges:

SunshineI was given Ice Cream Avery from the PaperNest Dolls to work with.   I colored this little cutie up with my SN markers, then fussy cut her out.  After assembling a sunburst background, made with shimmer and plain yellow CS, I added a curved border with a stamped sentiment.  I placed Avery , then added a glitter circle “sun” – and THOUGHT I was finished!!  However, my darling pup decided to help, and got his grubby little nose all over this project while he was checking out what he could fix on the card.   So, I had dirty little doggy nose smudges in a few places :(  The image was pretty firmly adhered, so I had to figure out a fix.   I re-cut some of the sun rays, and patched over some of the marks, but there was an obvious smudge on the bottom white part…..I covered it up with an ice cream brad….which bothers me to no end, because I liked the clean white portion….I guess an ice cream fits the mood better than dog nose marks :)
