Celebrating 6

I had a friend ask me to make a birthday card for a little girl who's turning 6 today. She gave me a picture of her and asked me to include the photo on her card, so this is what i came up with. I cut the photo and scalloped circle with Spellbinders circle dies, and added some PTI berry sorbet card stock. I embossed the bottom panel with the CB birthday embossing folder, and added some tiny tags that say "you're 6" underneath the bow. I made the "6" and the corner accent with my Quickutz and then embossed it with the square lattice ef. The glittered chipboard is from a stash I bought from QVC years ago and I thought it added a nice festive element for a little girl's birthday card. What little girl doesn't like glitter? The dsp was a scrap from my stash. The birthday girl sure is a cutie isn't she? {for the record, I have permission from her parents to post the card here}
I'm entering this card in the Speedy Fox & Friends challenge #91 to make a birthday card.
We got some snow here in PA overnight and the hubs is outside snow-blowing right now. I guess winter really arrived now :)
Have a great weekend!

Carol, what a pretty card and a verypretty little girl. I love those little tags and that ribbon. Your quick cut pieces and your chipboard piecs are all nice touches. It is still snowing here. We got 4 inches and so far we have about another 4 inches so far. It is suppose to stop around 4-5:00PM tonight. They say we could get up to 7 inches today. Yes wintr is here, but at least it started later than last year. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

What a cute card! I never would have thought of putting a photo on a card, but it will make a great keepsake for this little girl and her family. Such a great idea.

What a wonderful idea to include her cute photo! And your card design and embellishments are perfect too! Love this idea and I'm "pinning it" to my Hallmark, Eat Your Heart Out board on Pinterest. Smiles, Pam :)
