Birthday Card for a Reader

Good morning! My daughter celebrated her 12th birthday in June and I hadn't gotten a chance to share my card over here yet - so thought I would drop by and do that now! She is my little reader...I can pretty much guarantee that at any given opportunity she will have her nose buried in a book. And it is indeed a crisis if she runs out of books, and reason enough to make an emergency trip to the library! So when I saw this image in the May 2015 Kit of the Month, I just knew I had to incorporate it onto her birthday card - couldn't have been more perfect! :)

I colored the image in with my Zig watercolor pens, then heat embossed the sentiment on vellum, with the added Happy Birthday from the March 2015 Kit of the Month. Tor some edges, and added some pattern paper from my scrap bin to finish it off!

Oh - and she love it! Whew...sometimes as a mommy who makes cards, I feel like I have to do a super amazing job on my kids birthday cards - they know what I do and are always so excited to see what I make for them! Needless to say, I'm always happy when they are thrilled with whatever I make them! :)

Have a wonderful day everyone! See you soon!
