Finally Friday!!!

I am so glad it is Friday, it has been a hard week trying to close out the month and year, I am celebrating Jennifer's birthday a day early by showing you her card, but it is also my challenge for Pat's Saturday Night Challenge. Her challenge was to use dimension on the card. Jennifer is the daughter I never had, so you can only guess how much I care for her. She runs from the camera, so I don't have a picture to show you. But just a side note, she is my grand-daughter Amber's mother. And Amber is the spitting image of her Mom.

The lighting was really bad, it was so dismal outside with the rain, it made everything dark. Pat and Heather both had cards last week with the little Asian girls. since I didn't have a stamp, I just used a image. The clip art page that I used had 4 or 5 little girls to pick from. I wanted to use one with pigtails, but she had a yellow dress on. I just cut them both out, and switched heads. So I used piecing on this card, along with pop dots for dimension, and layering. In the next picture you can see why I wanted her to have the pig tails.
I used little straight pins with colored balls on the heads of them for the hair embellishments. Thanks for letting me share. Have a Happy birthday JENNIFER.
