It's my baby's birthday!

Yes it's Saturday so I have another card to share.  This one is for my daughter Mina.  My little one is 21+ today.  Each year I try to make handmade stuff for birthdays.  Could be an pie, cake, birthday card which is a given.  Home made cards are so personal.  You can pick out each and every element.  So here are the lyrics to the 2015 Mina birthday card...

~Scrap Factory Doll Builder program
     Body-Closed Toes
     Outfit-Just Girls #2
~Dew Drops Facial Expression Set #2
~Sure Cuts A Lot V4
~Silver Bullet Pro 24"
~Creative Haven Art Deco Ladies coloring Book
     (I can email you the colors used if requested)
~Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante, Steampunk Spells, Bohemian Bazaar tag board
~Orange Nylon net for legs (orange fishnet stockings)
~Printed paper scraps for Just Girls #2 outfit
~Mark Andrews purse sticker
~My personal handwriting
~and all the bits and pieces that I could list but I wouldn't remember all of them

My daughter growing up had very curly reddish brown hair and I would put it in pig tails just to keep it under control.  So of course the front of the card has a little girls wearing pig tails with an outfit that sure looks like one I made her.  She still has a passion for purses and I just happened to have a shaker sticker that was a purse.  The brad at the top is from Joanns clearance a couple of years ago.

The front.  The tag and flower are G45.

The lady on the inside of the card is Art Deco Lady coloring image from Creative Haven that I bought at Hobby Lobby.  I colored it using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and I also used my small set of Prismacolor colored pencils.

Her she is all colored

I still haven't learned to Print and Cut in SCAL4 so I used
Zenith Zing to first reduce the size and
then do a PNC.  That is a very detailed cut.

Here she is in all her glory on the inside of the card.

This is the right inside panel.  Flowers are G45 and
the pocket with the slider tag is also.
So the presents are wrapped.  The Anniversary card from last week and the birthday card today are on top.  (she took after her grandmother and got married on her birthday)  I can't share pics of what is in the boxes yet as we are celebrating on Sunday with a trip to the casino for brunch and bingo.

Waiting for the birthday gal!
Next week I can show you what is in the boxes.  (i promise)  So it's getting down to the wire for the cards for the bazaar.  So you may be seeing those projects in the next few posts.  

Bright blessings for now, Jana
