Polly - Happy Birthday - Digital Delights

Hi Everyone - We're half way through the month of September and half way through all the September birthdays in our family. I made this card for my mom's sister - my Aunt Nellie. Now Aunt Nellie is a very special aunt to me. She and her husband, Uncle Richard, were like my second set of parents. They did not have any kids until they adopted my cousin, David. So my brother and I were like their kids too - they spoiled us rotten. They were at all our special occasions throughout our lives - birthdays, graduation, weddings, etc. 

(Now Aunt Nellie reads our blog every day, so Aunt Nellie when you get to this part, you have to stop reading. I don't want you to see your card until it arrives in the mail. But of course, if I know my Aunt Nellie, she's still reading - HAAAA!!!)

So when I saw this little girl digi named Farm Girl Polly by Digital Delights by Louby Loo, I decided to use her for Aunt Nellie's card. I colored her hair blonde because my hair was blonde when I was a little girl.

Here is the card:

Card base - Kraft Paper cut at 6 x 12 and folded in half
Red Shimmer Paper
Scalloped Oval was cut using the Fancy Frames Cricut Cartridge at 4 3/4".  I pop dotted it for dimension
I cut two - 1 1/2" strips of the red paper and embossed them with the Dots Embossing Folder using the Cricut Cuttlebug
Digi was colored with Promarkers
Happy Birthday Sentiment is a Digital Delights digi.
Bling was purchased at Michael's

I hope Aunt Nellie likes her card as much as I do.  And I really hope that she stopped reading when I asked her to stop.  I'll ask her tomorrow and I know she can't lie - tee-hee!!  (And Aunt Nellie, if you're still reading - I LOVE YOU!!)
