Boxing Day Birthday.......

The eldest daughter of some very good friends of ours had her birthday on Boxing Day. This is the card that I made for her.The card base is a z-fold and the papers are from an 8x8 stack called 'Sweet Owl' by First Edition Paper. I cut a model from brown cardstock and dressed her in a chocolate brown polka dot dress with a pearl necklace and brown handbag and shoes all mounted with foam pads onto a scalloped rectangle.
I punched out 2 fancy borders using a large EK Success punch and adhered a strip of thin ribbon along the length of the border before adhereing them to the inside back of the card.'PIA' and 'Happy Birthday' was cut from chocolate polka dot paper and shadowed with pink card then adhered between the borders with foam pads.

A layered bloom with a cordorouy brad in the centre was added to the lower border to complete the card.
