Rebekah's Birthday Card

Hello everyone, after a few weeks break, I’m back with another creation! I am excited to say that I won over at Mami Doodles Challenge and I had the choice of any digi image as my prize! I hope to use it on a card soon!

Rebekah turned two on the third of June. Little ones don’t really understand what cards are or appreciate them, so I made it for more as a keepsake.
So here is my card:

I love this paper and these are my favourite colours! I bought these papers at a scrapbook shop in Jeffery’s Bay over Easter time. It is supposed to be an Easter range, but I think it suits a little girl’s birthday very well with all the hearts, dots and birds!

I used a Sugar Nellie Stamp which I think looks very much like Rebekah and she also loves to play on the swing! The felt flower on the paperclip was given to me by a friend, along with some other colours; I just changed the silver gem for a pink one.

The sentiment says ‘Happy Birthday Sweet Rebekah’. I wanted it to say ‘Happy Birthday Dearest Sister’, but then I realised my mom and dad were going to write in the card so that idea didn’t work! I also put three heart brads on the top right-hand corner.

I won this funky ribbon over at Heidi’s Crafts and it worked perfectly with this card and really suited it!

This is my sweetest little sister, Rebekah and she is the joy of our lives!
I would also like to enter the following challenges:

Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes with optional use of buttons
Craft your Passion - Anything Goes
KB Cute Monday - Anything Goes
Stamps R Us - There was a Little Girl

I hope you like my card!
