2nd Birthday Card

Today's card for my great-niece's upcoming birthday uses yet again, as I did on her first birthday card, a digi from Di's Digistamps – Cupcake Kitty digi (retired). 

Paper is Craft Sensations Over the Rainbow design pad. I realize the paper isn't something you'd normally associate with a child's card, but let's face it, at two the card is more for her mama than her, and I like it, so use it I did.

My no-brand border strip and faithful ric-rac die dress it up. Enamel dots give a bit of bling. The sentiment was created with Bradley Hand ITC font.
