Grandbaby's first birthday card

I can not believe she is already one year young!

Yes, it's little puddin' is turning one tomorrow and I simply can not believe how the time has gone by so quickly!  The little helpless baby I held against my chest just yesterday (so it seems) is now starting to walk, talk and show off with her own personality...and believe me, it's a BIG one!  haha  She so has us wrapped around her little finger, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

For Delilah's card I decided to use the multi-colored tutu that my daughter has made for her to wear during her party for's very festive and cheerful and gave me lots to play with.  I hope you like it.

                                                                And now you're one!

For this card I used the following cartridge and measurements.  Teddy Bear Parade-little party bear/cupcakes, cut at 6", then I decided to cut the balloons at 5 1/2" so they wouldn't appear to big.  I wanted the teddy bear to be the main focus.

Now for the added touches...For decorating the cupcakes, I used pink sugar glitter for the icing and Martha Stewarts' crystal glitter on the flame.  I also removed the candles from two of the cupcakes and used a patterned paper for the wrappers. 

The small banner in the background was made by hand cutting 1" triangles and printing the words on with Bic marker.  I then colored the three balloons with Copic markers V12, V15, G14, G24, R30 and R32. 

For the bear, I dressed her in an outfit to match the birthday girls...I used Bic markers to write BIRTHDAY GIRL and multi-color tissue paper for the tutu.  I inked her using brownstone and coffee bean, applied Glossy Accents to her nose and muzzle, added two fun google eyes and a pretty pink bow to finish her off.  Once the bear was completed I then sprayed her with Krylon crystal clear spray to preserve the image.

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a look.  Kathie
