Happy Birthday Card for Gabby

I just wanted to share the Birthday card I designed for my Grand Daughter Gabby.  She is turning 3.  I made a pocket card out of Lilac Cardstock and then adhered a small white paper doily to the front.  I slid a vellum tag that had a lilac string attached onto a lilac ribbon with white polka dots and tied it around the pocket.  I wrote Happy Birthday on the vellum tag with a white gel pin.  The paper doll was a free svg download from - I used the fairy pattern.  They have some amazing paper doll downloads for various occasions.  I cut it using my Cricut personal die cutting machine.  When I put this doll together, I cut the bodice out of cardstock but taped a piece of irredescent wrapping paper to the bodice.  The two piece skirt pattern was cut out of two shades of plum/purple cardstock and I used the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder to emboss them with dots.  I then gathered a piece of light gray tulle and used fabric glue to glue it to the top of the skirt and then glued the bodice on top.  I cut two "shoes" by just tracing the feet on cardstock and shaping them like shoes and covered them with purple organza.  I cut two of the hair sections and one of them I put glue tape on the back of and then cut rounded strips from it and glued it down to the base hair section to give it the appearance of real hair.  I then tied a narrow purple ribbon around the bun.  I had a Peachy Keen stamp set for doll faces but they were too big for this size paper doll so I just looked at the stamp and then free hand drew the face on the doll.  I colored the inside of the mouth and the cheeks with a atyou Spica marker"Twinkling like stars" in the color:  14 - Blossom.  I added gold glitter glue to the star at the tip of the wand.  I cut the wings out of clear acetate from recycled packaging and added clear glitter glue that had some irridescent glitter in it.  Thank you for looking.
