Nellie 5th Birthday Card

Another 5th birthday card - this time for my in-laws to give to my daughter.
The image is Sitting Nellie, Stamped in Whisper Black ink, and coloured with watercolour pencils and an aqua brush. Cut out and mounted onto thin foam pads so that she sits just slightly higher than the 5.
I made the numeral using Ariel Rounded font. Used the computer to enlarge, mirror it, and print out. Rough cut around, then temporarily fixed it to the back of Bazzill Bling - may be 24 Karat, but am not sure. Cut out the 5, removed the template, and then ran it through my Cuttlebug in the Floral Fantasy folder.
The pink flowery backing paper is Pebbles Inc. - Party Time Girl Stripe/Flower, and the checked one is Doodlebug - Baby Girl Plaid.

I doodled a decorative border around the edge of the pink paper with an orange Soufflé pen. The flowers are made using an X-Cut punch - Flower Head with the checked paper, and a 1/4" hole punch with the pink paper for the centres. I shaped them with my embossing tool before assembling and sticking onto the card. This card is just a little bigger than A6 (approx 4x6").
