Cabbage Patch Card

If you're of a certain age - you may remember the craziness of Cabbage Patch dolls.  These dolls were developed in 1978 by a young art student, and became one of the most popular toy fads.  

So, when I was asked to create a card this week for a little lady's first birthday featuring Cabbage Patch I was in.  

Happy First Birthday Briah!!!

The image is from a free download colouring book, printed on Xpress It Copic paper and coloured with Copic markers.  I fussy cut the image and used foam tape to pop her off the page.

The sentiment comes from Birthday Bash, and the balloons from Artistry cricut cartridges.  
I continued the balloons inside the card and tied with some retired waxy flax.

The patterned paper is from Confetti Wishes (retired) from CTMH.  Every little girl likes bling so I added purple sparkly hearts to her cupcake and balloon.

I decided to only colour in the "1" on the card to not make it too busy.

I couldn't be happier with the final project and it is now Gramma approved and off to the party!!!
