Child Birthday ~~ April SOTC

♥ Hello my dear blogging Friends,
finally got inky today, after several days of literally staring at my
messy craft space and wondering how did I let it go that 'wild' once again...*sigh*
I just wish I had a magic wand each and everytime I finish creating a card...

Anyways, today's post is about April's Challenge for the SOTC group
 (Sisterhood Of The Travelling Cards) on SCS' s site :

My dear friend Carol was the wonderful hostess for last month, and she challenged us to create children's birthday cards so that her beautiful 7 yo grandaughter could use them  for the many children's birthdays invites she goes to. Great idea, right? ♥

Well, believe it or not I actually had  a real hard time deciding on what to create, which image to chose, go boy/girl or neutral?... I even went through a bunch of newer stamps and, at the end, I chose the one set that wasn't even considered at first....
I really should try to use the many older rubbah I collected over the years ,especially from my SU stash. This set was purchased via SCS B&S a few years back and it's only my second time using it...yet it is such an adorably cute set w/ endless possibilities...
Finally, I decided how my cards was going to take shape and what you see  is the final result...

Card front and Inside of card

Ultimatly I liked how this lil girl immie turned out, holding a heart shaped balloon (brushed with Crystal Effect to give it a sheen look) and a lil banner message.
The nesties are positioned over fabric d/p. This lil gal's totally ready to part-eee ;o)
 Hopefully, every sweet lil birthday girls receiving these cards would enjoy receiving them just as much as I did creating it....
Thanks for stopping by my friends, please let me know what your thoughts are...I do appreciate each and every comment I read....*muwahhhhhhhhh*

Great card Paola and what a cute image. Your design, image, papers and all the little extras are wonderful and you've created some happy, feel-good cards! I love how you've finished the inside too.
