Late Posting for a Little Birthday!

Hi there! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! It's incredibly hot and uncomfortable here in NH and I'm looking forward to the cool down coming!  So I am sharing a card today I made last week for my niece's birthday.  She turned three this Monday.  
I went with a GF Hope and Grace image and colored her with Copics.  I tried out the tissue paper punched flower technique and finished it with a pink jeweled brad and some tiny black half pearls.  The sentiment pulls out of the side.  The "3" is a wooden number I ended up with in a grab bag.  I heat embossed it in black and finished it with marker (which you can see by the Stickles on the base of the image...the Stickles made it run!)  The paper is Martha Stewart and I used a border stamp on the sides of the image.  I embossed the black cardstock with Paisley CB folder. Thanks for looking an have a great day!

Challenges:
Little Red Wagon: Birthday
Quixotic Paperie: Emboss it (black background cardstock)
Pixie Dust: Add a pearl (mini half pearls on corners and flower)
Allsorts: Tag, ticket or label (pullout tag "Happy Birthday")
