Mo's Challenge #172

Happy Birthday To......!

We're celebrating birthdays at Mo's Challenge this week! 

I've used "Alissa with Roses" on this card. All Mo's images are adorable, but I think the face on this little lady is just lovely!  She's an absolute joy to color, too!
 I really love the way this card turned out. The 'frame' behind the image panel is actually two whole die cuts with parts of a third to fill in the gaps on either side.

 Inside: "To celebrate you! Happy Birthday!"

Images: "Alissa with Roses" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment

Tools: Copics,  Spica Pen, Cuttlebug with Marianne die, Nellie Snellen  embossing Rose leaf punch, glue dots

Papers: SU! Orchid, Lavender, and Celery, Neenah white, Digital DP

Embellishments: Flowers from WOC, Pearl cabochons

Here's another birthday card. This one would be perfect for a young boy.
Isn't this little rascal  cute?! Who's going to be the next one soaked?
