Birthday card for a little cutie!

With being rather far from home for school (5 days of not too strenuous driving) I have some excuse for getting my projects done early, but it sure means I miss out on the fun stuff. My friend's daughter turns 2 in March so I had to make a card (they already have the birthday gift). I got inspired from an older issue of a card magazine that gave some ideas about using clear or translucent materials. I had to CASE a card they had done making a window/pouch on acetate, but I wanted my pouch on patterend paper. So I pulled out embroidery thread and my paper piercing tool and went to work. Needless to say I figured out the deal by the time I was most of the way done. That's right, I do not own a sewing machine and therefore had to do all that stitching by hand! Worth it, but rather time consuming. I filled the pouch with some buttons, velum rectangles on which I wrote Happy Birthday with my Sakura glaze pens, and a little paper daisy by Making Memories. Then I just had to finish things up! As my friend adores pink there was no choice, at least until her daughter gets older and the cards are really for her. hehe.

Papers: pink and white heart stripe, pink cardstock, acetate
Other: flocked pink alphabet stickers, embroidery floss, buttons, star brads (or maybe they're flowers!), black Sakura glaze pen, black finetip marker, star shaped stick on rhinestones
