Avery's Sixth Birthday Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to Avery's Sixth Birthday Blog Hop! We're so glad you could join us.

Avery is one of our dolls and she has just happened to have a birthday! In honor of her sixth birthday, the design team put together a hop to share projects made with the brand new "Avery's Birthday Surprise" stamp now available in both digital and rubber!

What a fun stamp! Avery was sure excited to see it. :)

Now onto my project for today... 
First off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY AVERY!!!! Who can resist this little darling? Seriously? I had so much fun inking this baby up and making her into a card was even more fun, I only hope that our critique, Avery loves every single card that we have made in her honour.....

I wanted to make her as bright and cheery as I could, something tells my the real Avery is just that, full of fun....
I used Copic markers to ink her up.
Skin: E000, E00, E11 and R20
Hair: E50, E51 and E53
Her Outfit, balloons and confetti: BG11, BG15, RV34, V15, V17, V18, YR04 and YR07
Shoes: E74 and E77
Cupcake Liner: E40, E41 and E42
Present: YG00, YG03, YG25, BG11 and BG15
I also added Glossy Accents to the balloons to give them a shiny look.

The card is a 5X5" card back made by Gina K Kraft card stock. The patterned paper is by Pebbles called "Sunny Side". I added the balloon stickers to add some dimension. They are Autumn Leaves Fall Balloons. I distressed the layers with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain ink. Faux stitching was added using a Signo Uniball white gel pen. Oh and I almost forgot the cheese clothe..... =)

And of course we have some super fun blog candy to thank those who come and hop with us!
