Uptown Ava Loves to Celebrate

The weather has turned warmer, so my crafting time will start to become harder to fine.  We love to spend time outdoors, so I don’t have as much time to spend creating cards….unless of course, it rains!  The next four months have a lot of birthdays in my family, so I need to make the most of my time!  LOL!

Uptown Girl Ava Loves to Celebrate made a great birthday card. 

Birthday Cards-463

Using Copic markers I colored her in some springtime colors.  I used Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangles to cut her out and create a mat to mount her onto.  I then mounted the mat on some fun foam to add some depth to the card.

The patterned paper is from my stash.  I thought they went well together.  I used a die from the Mama Elephant Borderlines Trio to create the stitched scalloped border to put between my papers….it doesn’t show up very well however.  LOL!

I had recently purchased some Heidi Swapp tags that are ready to be foiled.  I have the Minc Mini, so I decided to foil a couple of the tags for my card.  I really liked how they turned out.  I also added some glossy accents to the icing on the cake and some Pink Peonies sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish my card.

One final look…
