First Birthday

I recently found out that we have a new addition to our family. My nephew adopted a little girl and her first birthday is this month. So I wanted to send her a birthday card. Her birthday is right after we get back from vacation so I'll need to send it before we get home, So I wanted to be sure it was ready to go so I could send it while we were on the road.

This is a retired image from Beccy's Place. This set has images from 1 to 9 and it's one of my favorite sets. I've used it a number times for different children's birthdays. The images are such fun! I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers (I got some new colors for Christmas!) and die cut the image with MFT Inside and Out Rounded Squares. The designer paper is Sweet Celebrations 6x6, a new paper pack from MFT that they had on sale. I love the bright colors! I backed each of the layers with black card stock to make the colors pop! The sentiment is from Jillibean Soup Balloon Party. I heat embossed it with black detailed embossing powder, inked the Quickcutz Tag with Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink and added a heart die cut from Simon Says Stamps Stacked Hearts. I printed the image twice and fussy cut the one so I could it pop it off the card for texture. The "one" is covered with Wink of Stella so it sparkles, the heart on the tag is covered with glossy accents, and I used white gel pen to embellish parts of the image. I really like how this card turned out!
I am entering these challenges:

So this will be my last post before we leave for Florida. Tomorrow I will be packing all day and getting ready to leave early Friday morning. I'll have at least one scheduled post next week and hopefully I'll have more posts while we are on vacation. I'm going to try to take some crafty things with me. We'll see how that goes. Thanks for stopping by. Take care until my return!

What a good idea to back each of the papers with the black card as they really do pop and make an impact. Lovely card for a first birthday and as you have the set you can just keep going. Hugs Mrs A.
