happy birthday lucy

hi world,
it was daughter no 3's birthday on monday.... yup valentines day! she used to hate sharing her day with the rest of the world when she was little. but now she's a big girl she thinks it is quite cool.

this is the card i made her. it is very similar to the last one i posted, my cards have definately changed since i brought the bigshot.
in this months craft stamper there was an article about dye-ing ribbon with alcohol inks. i decided to use it on lucy's card.
i was really pleased with the results.  i also made a background card with the same colours and over stamped on it with archival ink. i used watermelon, pink sherbert and sunshine yellow.

i think the little girl stamp is from kars and coloured in with aqua promarkers. but i left the ribbon at work so could not use it.

the shape on the base is mounted with foam pads because there is a hidden card inside . .  it's lucy's bump card, (she is expecting a baby in may). there is a pull tab to reveal it.
the sentiment just says happy birthday, but the hidden card says . . .   to my yummy mummy. she loved the card but i think she liked all the valentines stuff from her boyfriend more. how they change lol.
