Lanie's 1st Birthday-Three Clovers Challenge #32, Simon Says "It's a Stitch Up" and Pile It On Challenge #17





My great niece celebrated her 1st birthday on Saturday and I thought this Mo Manning image was just perfect for her card.

I colored the image with Copics, then cut the image and mat with Nestibilites. The #1 is a Cricut cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and the balloons were cut using the George Basic Shapes cartridge. The patterned papers are digital ... the floral is from a Funky Hand cd called "Funky Word Books" and the gingham is from the "Sweetest Thing" set from Designer Digitals. I added some stitching and a little doodling for detail. Lanie and her parents loved the card, which is really what it's all about.

And, just by chance, this card works perfectly for the current challenge at Three Clovers Designs. Check out Kerry's great blog.
