Another Wee Niece Has a January Birthday!

As mentioned earlier in the month, I have two birthday nieces in January, and they are both in the same family!  My second little niece is going to be two this year!  I made her new sister a baby card earlier this month as well, though she was born in September.  (I was a tad late welcoming her to the world.)  This new little sister got a cute little giraffe card, and while searching for just the right giraffe for that card, I came across this pack of zoo animals going to a party.  I thought it would be just right for Paisley's second birthday!

My method for coloring my digital images is to find the paper first that I think will go with my digital image, and then, the coloring seems to fall in place.  So, I settled on this cute glittery polka dot paper in pastels, and chose to bring out the pinks in the paper since the card is for a wee girl.  

I just bought the Stitched Curved Rectangle STAX from My Favorite Things, and knew the largest would work out perfectly for cutting out my little animals.  I was super happy to see that my large corner punch fit the curves on the rectangles perfectly to use on an underlay mat.  I also recently bought some Cottage Cutz word dies that I had been dying to get my hands on, so, I was equally anxious to try out the happy birthday words on Paisley's card.  I hope Paisley finds her card as much fun to look at, as I had fun making it.
