Happy birthday to a beautiful 7-year-old!

My granddaughter who lives in Portland, OR, is turning seven today, and here is the card I made for her.

Step cards are so much fun, and this one was no exception.  The focal image was created by Anna Stillwell of Cuddlebug Cuties. If you've never visited her blog, I recommend a little look-see at all her fabulous images, which she generously shares with her readers.

I colored the image with my ProMarkers except for her skirt, which I paper-pieced. I also added some Glossy Accents to her balloons.

After fussy cutting around the red balloon, I used a Lifestyle Crafts scalloped oval die to cut her out.

I'm not sure who made the circle happy birthday stamp, but it was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed.

The buttons have also been die-cut with my Impression Obsession button dies. When I have time, I make them out of scraps of paper that are too small for anything else. I keep them sorted by color, so that I can easily find just the one I want.

The hanging hearts on each side of the card were cut with the Memory Box "Precious Hearts" die. After I took them out of the die, I used a stylus to round the heart out a bit and added a gem to the bow.

The inside of the card has a computer-generated sentiment and a couple more buttons for good measure.

I sure hope my granddaughter likes her card! This card took a while to make with all its little details, but I had a blast doing it.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
