Happy Birthday, Hello Kitty .... uh, I mean, Jaydin!!!

Today is my dear daughter's 5th birthday!!! She doesn't know it yet, but I'm taking her to a friend's horse farm to spend a couple of hours. I think she's going to be THRILLED. Anyway, I would be SO remiss if I didn't make my own daughter a birthday card. I did make one ... last night ... BUT it got done. :)

That's what I want to share with you today. She loves Hello Kitty, and she made a very special one at Build A Bear on Saturday. The head on that cat is HUGE!!!!! :) But, she is happy with it.

So, I chose to make a Hello Kitty card for her birthday. I can't wait for her to see it. It's going to be such a big day for her, though, it may just be more than her little self can handle. She'll appreciate it at some point, though.

I took this image and imported it into SCAL. SCAL broke apart the outlines for me and created the layers that I needed. The only thing that it didn't do well with was the bow. So, I went into the Hello Kitty cartridge and made the bow.

Here's how my version turned out. I changed some of the colors to fit my child, and I added a great Hello Kitty ribbon that I found at JoAnn's on Sunday. I put the image on a piece of embossed cardstock (embossed with the Art Deco folder) with pop dots. Let me know what you think!!

So, Happy Birthday, Jaydin!!! I love you, my princess.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!!!
