Birthday Card

I have a cute card to share with you today.  It's Maya's 3rd birthday card and she adores Minnie Mouse, so what would be more fitting for her than to send Minnie to her.  I wanted to share this for a couple of weeks but had to wait as the card needed to go to Japan so didn't want to spoil the surprise.

Stamps: On Your Birthday (w – 111664 $41.95 p. 163 2011-2012 IB&C)

I had so much fun making this card.  Lots of experimenting to get the punches the right size and in the right place.  Notice Minnie's pearls - every girl deserves a string of pearls.
