Happy Birthday Digi

Hello! Here is a birthday card I made with a free Digi Stamp that I got from Shirley's 2 Girls on SNR. Isn't she just adorable? I love the way she is popping out of that cake. After printing the image I colored it with Copic markers and added some glitter glue on the top and some black glitter on the inside portion where she is popping out from. There are some black pearls on the bottom cake layer. When I saw the image and was playing with ideas in my head, I was planning to used pinks and oranges for this image but when I sat down and started looking through my paper, I found that cool black and white paper with the numbers on it and thought that it would make a great card for someone that might be a little older, you know past twenty one that might not want to share their age with everyone. As the final touches, I added the black and white gingham ribbon and some sparkle with a Sakura glitter pen. Supplies: paper and card stock from DCWV, ribbon from my ginormous ribbon stash, pearls from Doodlebug, Sakura glitter pen, black glitter from Martha Stewart, glitter glue and Copic markers.

Speaking of birthdays, we celebrated Kip's tonight with his family and some friends. Our friend Mike took this picture for us. We had a great time and you can see some of his gifts there. Can you see how short my hair is? It's not tucked behind my shoulder. I decided to trim my hair last night and a little trim turned into about 5 1/2 inches or so. Oops. Now, it is right at the top of my shoulders. It feels pretty good. My hair is naturally curly and when Kip got home last night, it was brushed out straight and pulled back so he didn't notice. He left early for church and I was still in the shower, so he didn't see it until I showed up. He likes it though and so do I and I was ready for a change so all is good!

Very fun how the cake extends beyond the image panel. The numbered background is a great idea.
