Happy Easter! I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday on this glorious day, as we celebrate the resurrection of the Savior.
Today I have a birthday card for a special little cousin of mine, whose birthday I missed! She is named after my favorite aunt and is quite adorable. I'm hoping at 4 years old she's not too upset with a late birthday card!
This card is entered in the Card Patterns Sketch 160 challenge.

Cut a piece of pink card stock measuring 7" x 10", score at 5", and fold. Use the corner rounder punch to round the two corners on the opening side of the card.
Cut a piece of patterned paper measuring 4 7/8" x 6 7/8", and round 2 corners of the mat. Use double sided tape to mount the ribbon on the left side of the mat.
Resize the image on your computer to be 5" in height. Print the image, then cut/emboss with the largest Petite Oval die. Cut/emboss a green mat for the image using the smallest Grand Scalloped Oval die.
Color the image with COPIC markers. I used these colors:
- HAIR: Y21, Y26
- HAIR BOW/SOCKS: R30, R32
- SKIN: E000, E01, E02, R20
- DRESS/SHOES: YG61, YG63
- PRESENTS: Y06, YG67, B91, B95, R30, R35, YG61, YG63
Mount the image onto the mat, then mount these on the front of the card, overlapping the ribbon.
Stamp the sentiment in black on a piece of white card stock measuring 7/8" x 2 3/8". Adhere this to a piece of pink card stock measuring 1" x 2 1/2". Mount this to the card front below the image.
Finally, glue the the flowers to the upper left of the image, and add pearls to the right of the image.
