Connie's 5th Birthday Card

Today's post is not what I was going to make as I had printed off some Fabulous Fashion prints to make a shopfront card.  Then I remembered I had a card to make for a friends daughter, Connie, who will be 5 year old soon.  I love this image from The Paper Shelter and it looks so like Connie as you can see from her photo.  I have passed this card to her mum for approval and given her some verses to choose in care she does not like the one I have put on the card.

Connie ready for dance class. Just look at her curls
Front of Card

Card with drop down when held by Ribbon

Reverse of card with verse
The card is an 8 x 8 white card blank
The background and digi stamp is a download from The Paper Shelter
Name was created with Docrafts Digital Designer software as was green spotty paper
Sentiment and verse from my collection
Pearls and ribbon from stash.
I used an 8 x 8 card with fold at bottom so the age 5 page will drop down when held by the ribbon.
Sorry pictures are not up to much but I have not mastered quite how to make them lovely.  I thought Connie would like to use card as wall hanging after her birthday is over, hence the ribbon at the top.
Connie is such a sweet little girl that I thought she deserved something different and this is what I came up with.  Now I eagerly await your comments, just wish I had photographed them better.
What a lovely day we are having, sat out in the sun for a while this morning and read the Sunday Papers, took the dogs for a walk, they were reluctant as they don't like it warm and as I have the dinner prepared I will have another relax in the sun.
Take care you lovely crafters, will get round more posts after dinner as there are loads of wonderful
designs out there.
