Happy 4th Elise

Today is our granddaughter, Elise's 4th birthday. Where does the time go?
Each year I make a her special birthday card and then her mom puts the card in a clear envelope and attaches it to her bedroom door. The pressure is on to make sure it's "door worthy". LOL

A couple months ago I was browsing around SCS and came across THIS beauty by Stampit74. The image looks so much like Elise that I had to order the stamp (C.C Designs). I copied the original card by replacing the pumpkin with the number.

I left this picture a little dark so you could see the dotted swiss effect on her apron. I tried to paper-piece white cardstock with swiss dot embossing, but it just didn't work. Then I spied my Viva Decor pearl pens! I love these things. The Ice White made perfect dots!

The papers are from Imaginisce Garden Party 6x6 pad and the number die is from PTI.

Elise is all about princess' these days, so I just had to make her envelope a fairytale land. It was easy peasy using a sheet of paper from the paper pad.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to have cake with the cutest 4 year old I know!
