Happy Birthday Princess-----

Hi ya, yes stickles still did you know?!

Anyway I have the house all to my self for a bit, which is good because I am cranky! So cranky I am complaining to Tilda as I color, yes, I hate the heat. My hair is mussed, my back is sore and my feet are tired, 88 degrees in this house is too hot!

My nieces birthday party is in 6 days so I got to work on her birthday card. It was sooooo hard at first but then I found my paper and I did not stop once before I was done. Now I have one heck of a clean up, but its done and I love it! The colors are lovely and inspired by Magnolia-licious in the image below. I picked up on the primary colors and went to town!

My card is intended for a 4 year old princess who is getting everything pink, I wanted to be a step outside the box with her card. With her baby sister coming really soon I also wanted to go a bit overboard for a 4 year old, let her know that I love her! This will be her last birthday party alone, as her sister is so close they will have a combined party. She is scared about the baby coming, never said it, but you can see the jealousy in her eyes. I do not blame her, for four years she was the only girl and lavished with kawaii, pink, love and hugs. Now when something pink comes in she is told "Ahh thats for the new baby".  Poor kid, a bit to young to understand I think.

I had fun making this. I can say I have never used colors like this together! The princess last month ( the silver thing is decoration)
