For A Big Sister!!!WT152

I have VERY exciting personal news!! My cousin just had a baby boy Eli Michael!! I am just so happy for them. As the big sister in my family I know how odd it may seem when a new baby comes in the family. So my family and I shipped off some presents for the Big Sis!! The words from Little Paper Shop's All in the Family fit the gift enclosure so well. I preceded to sponge the white cut outs with Almost Amethyst (SU). I also wanted a fun girl image to represent Amie (the big sis!) and what would be better than the little Ballerina from Little Paper Shop's Tu-Turific. I colored her with the following copics R20, E00, V01, Rv11, E33 and C1.

The base of the card is Doodlebug Polka Dots (for the WT152-which was to use polka dots). Finally I topped off the card with the dainty flower sticker from EK Success.

I hope you like it!!
