You are Tutu Sweet! Birthday card

It's New Years Eve and what better way to bring in the New Year than with a birthday card for a little sweetie who's birthday falls on that all important '1st Day of the Year'. How much more important could you be. Favourite colour 'purple'
Coloured with Copics, added glue pen to the skirt in squiggles
then poured glitter over in pink but alas in the photo it looks more
red so you will just have to believe me when I say its 

a lovely hot pink glitter. It looks better IRL than here. Anyhooo I added glitter
to the headband as well. To add to the card itself I cut two layers of the stitched
die cut, the original with the Copic coloured (Mo's Digital Pencil) image
and another larger for under this. I then chose a couple of purple Copics and
blended them around the edge of the circle only going in far enough to be covered
by the top layer.

I used the sentiment from a Penny Black set with other images
drawn by Mo but in stamp form. Finished off with a couple of
rows of stars die cut from silver glitter paper.


Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope to see you again soon.

Oh so super cute!! Today is my sister's birthday too, I do feel for her because I know that sometimes she can be forgotten among the hype of Chrissy and New Year, I always have to post her card out extra early to allow for all the days that the Post Office is closed. Anyway, she is going to be here next week for a visit so I'm pretty excited that I'll get to see her real soon too!
