Hello there, today I am sharing the card I made for my niece's birthday a few days a go. I cannot believe it, but she is seven already!

For my card, I started off by stamping the TGF Birthday Anya image with black ink and then colouring her using Copic Markers. I also added a little Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to her hair clip and cherries on the cake. I added dots to her dress with a white gel pen. She was then cut out with scissors.

With my Cricut Explore I cut out a seven on to a panel of white cardstock. On a white A2 card base I added a sheet of paper from the Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine paper pad (unfortunately it looks like this has now been discontinued). I then added the seven panel on top with foam tape. Birthday Anya was then added on top with more foam tape. To finish off, I added some Doodlebug Cupcake Glitter Sprinkles.

I was so tempted to make the seven a shaker but since I did a shaker for her last year, I resisted! Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great day and a great weekend too!
