Another birthday card for my niece

I cannot believe that my adorable niece is 8 tomorrow, where the hell did that time go?  You’ve seen the card that I made from myself so now its time to see the card that I have made from my Nan.

I have used this image before, probably some time last year but I wanted to get this out again because I love the girl in this image, its meant to be all about the shoes but she could be getting ready to go out.

I used an 8×8 card again as my base and I cut my watercolour card to 6.5×6.5 inches so I had enough room to make a decent mat and layer effect with the Mirri card. Everyone tells me I work backwards when I am crafting different things and I guess me starting the border before stamping the middle may be considered one of those backwards things but I like to work like that.  I then stamped the middle and then I coloured the images in with a mixture of Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and Spectrum Noir Aquablend pencils.  Once everything was dried (I always let things dry naturally as I tend to have a disaster with helping the drying along!) I cut my Mirri card to 6.7×6.7 inches and 6.9×6.9 inches before I placed it on the Mirri card I had chosen for the base layer on the card.  I stamped and mounted the sentiment on Mirri card and then placed it on the card .  I think someone will like it when she opens it tomorrow morning.
