Sugar and spice...

"and everything nice.  That's what little girls are made of."  My last post was a card for a boy's birthday.  This one is soooo girlie!!  To me, little Izzie from Stamping Bella is the total essence of that little girl poem.  So soft and feminine!  Sooooo cute!!

This card is for my son's fiancee's birthday which is exactly one week after his.  Lindsay and Ryan (my son) are getting married this fall and I couldn't be happier!  She's a great gal and makes Ryan very happy.  After all, that's what we mothers want for our kids, right??

Izzie was just a ball to work up... all that curly and yummy cake!  I purchased her and a few other Izzie's (and Mavises) a couple weeks ago when Stamping Bella was having a 20% off sale!  LOVE those sales!  : )  I just couldn't wait to color one up and knew 'Izzie has a BIRFDAY cake' would be perfect this occasion. 

Now the original coloring was a much softer pink with white stripes.  But when I found this wonderful vintage paper from Graphic 45, I just had to use it.  Since Izzie's pink was too soft, I 'dustied' it up by sponging the entire image (leaving the oval nestie in place) with antique linen distress ink.  I think that really did the job.  IRL they look great together.  Oh... and I have to give credit for my layout to Linda Heavens.  I saw this ca-yute layout a while back and it stuck in my memory.  I thought it was perfect for this card.  Thanks Linda!!!
