A Birthday Card for my Great Niece

Yesterday, my great niece Ella celebrated her 7th birthday, and here is the card
I made for her. I came across the idea on Pinterest and cased this card.
I had a great time helping her celebrate with a family party.

I used a Versamark inkpad and stamped one of the swirls from the set randomly
on the card base. I had completely forgotten about this technique. I love the effect
it gives by making the base card darker.

The products I have used are:-
Kelly Panacci Clear Stamps - Swirls
First Edition Craft Dies - Number and Date
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circles and Scalloped Circles
Stampin' Up - Word Window Punch

Challenges entered:-
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes with an optional Twist - Use Dies and Punches
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Monochromatic Theme with Ribbon or Lace
Daisy Chain Challenge - Monochrome
Let's Craft and Create - Girls, Girls, Girls
Mix it Up Challenge - Anything Goes with an optional Twist - Stamping
Allsorts - Use at Least Two Dies

Thanks for stopping by.
