Tuesday Morning #42: More April Birthdays!

Stamps: Magnolia 'Fairy Tale Tilda', Papertrey 'Green Thumb' sentiment. Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Old Olive, PTI 'Berry Sorbet', white, glitter DP. Ink: Memento, Copics, Melon Mambo. Accessories: Circle and oval Nestabilities, Sheer flower, gem, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, sheer ribbon, googly eyes.

This birthday celebrates the day my youngest daughter made her appearance; it's so hard to believe she is already nine years old! Although this Tilda is perfect for her (she's the type of kid who would dress up to go catch frogs), I couldn't quite get past the fact the original frog image had no eyes. The solution: add googly eyes and create an even more kid-friendly card!

Special thanks going out to my wonderful Secret Sis on Splitcoast Stampers, Momma Patti, who spoiled me with the majority of supplies used on this card!

Here's this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch:
