I started with a figure on Cricut Country Life, a hair style from Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up, a cake from Cricut Imagine Yummy, glasses from Nifty Fifties, and a tiara from Cricut Princess Party. From there, I hand-cut her gown.
I cut the figure in flesh and traced the bodice in patterned paper so I could give her a little frontal 'enhancement', which I popped up.
The sleeves are tissue paper and the trim at the bottom and collar is some that Donna herself bought me last year at a little shop when we were all together in Atlanta for Circle Mania!
I trimmer-cut papers for the front of the card and created a birthday candle trim using an edger punch and hand-colored the flames.
The cake was added and adhered with pop dots.
In the end, I placed the image so that the card would open from the center on the paper mats.
Happy Birthday, Barbara!
And may the Birthday Queen continue to bring you many happy birthdays!
