how many fingers are you??

well today i am showing a 1st birthday card for little elsie who lives next door ~cannot believe she is nearly one year old!! used the wonderful sketch over on TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS, they have an added theme of making a childs card!! also this follows the theme on ONE STOP CRAFT ~decorative cuts ( use die cuts) ~links on my side bar.
for this card i used this sweet sugarnellie stamp ( inked up for the first time), cuttlebug birthday embossing folder, quickutz candle, photo corner and hand print dies, sizzix number 1 die, nestabilities deckled edged dies, inkadinkado childrens wording and then finished with a little glitter.
a close look at the image.
