Birthday Girl Card

I have been playing around with Julie Nutting's ideas from  her book - Collage Couture!  If you scroll down to my last post you will see the link to her blog.  I took her suggestion and copied a form from a magazine to make my model.  After making the template below, I cut it out of newspaper print. I love dressing the models in different clothing! 
My daughter's birthday in June 7th and I wanted to make a different card for her this year.  The hardest part is getting the hair right.  I used Claudine Hellmuth's acrylic paints to add the hair. My daughter's hair is very curly.  I don't think I quite captured her hair but I hope to get better with practice.  Here is the inside of her birthday card.  Shhh!  She is going to be 29!  Oh, to be 29 again!!
