Birthday Girl


Birthday Girl - no name.jpg

My friend needed a birthday card for her granddaughter’s 6th birthday. We looked through images and she liked this image from Free Dearie Dolls. The original image had different colored dress and hair on the girl. I emailed Mary Ellen and asked if she could put straight red hair on the girl and she did! Then I colored the dress and hat in Photoshop. The other part of the image was pre-colored by Mary Ellen. I used the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch for my inspiration.

The granddaughter’s name was below the image (I whited out most of it)

I used the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #107 for my inspiration.

I made this for a friend at church who turned 50! We had a little surprise party for her and this is one of the cards everyone signed.
