Happy Birthday, Amanda

Hi, guys! You know the saying, "Sugar & Spice and everything nice..." - well, that describes my niece Amanda to a T!  She is turning 8 and I thought I would share the birthday card I made for her.  If you can picture the ultimate girlie-girl, you will have Amanda in mind.  She loves dressing up and having tea parties with me either at my house or at our favorite tea shop in Manhattan.  Nothing cuter than a little girl dressed up in a dress, hat and gloves.  It will melt your heart.

I decided to use a stamp by Suzi Blu by Stampavie.  She looks so pretty, feminine with a touch of sporty. I love the way she is on skates in a dress with flowers. So fun, and so Amanda.

Stamps: Suzi Blu/Stampavie
Paper: Stampin' Up
Ink: Memento Black
Misc.: Copic Markers, Tim Holtz Alpha/Numeric 8, Washi Tape from Japan, Flower Gem 

I want to give a special thanks to my sister-in-law Rika for bringing me back a great supply of washi tape from Japan when she visited her family last summer.  I got to use it on this card and I love the colors and patterns on them.

Happy Birthday, Amanda!

Thanks for visiting with me today, and I hope to see you back soon!
