Happy 24th Birthday!

Hi Everyone,

my daughter had her 24th birthday a few days ago - where did the time go??? She recently got herself a cat, so now she is getting cat cards from me....
I took my inspiration from this month Waffle Flower challenge - and I have their super cute stamp set, which has a cat and a dog. As extra challenge for me I decided to combine all their options - technique, colors and sketch and that's what came out of it:

A one layer card. Sponged, masked and did some inlaid die cutting with those fun Avery Elle balloon numbers. Added glossy accents to them and googly eyes to the cat.

Here are some pictures of my daughter from her baby years:

And here she is now:

Deine Tochter war aber ein süßes Baby und jetzt ist sie eine tolle junge Frau.
Nicht nur ihr, auch dir herzlichen Glückwunsch zu ihrem Geburtstag.
Eltern habe ja doch einiges dazu getan, dass die Kinder "gut geraten" und ihren Weg, privat, ausbildungsmäßig und dann beruflich gehen.
Ich bin der Meinung: Ihr habt das gut hinbekommen und könnt stolz auf eure Tochter sein.
Deshalb hat sie diese tolle Karte auch verdient.
Liebe Grüße
