22nd Birthday Card

I am very excited to be guest designing today for Kassidy at Inking It Up Crazy. She wanted to feature birthday cards today and I happen to have a sister with a birthday in two days so I created a card just for her.

My sister, Brandy, has been into pink and black and the "punky" feel for a long time and I knew that Rock Princess was the best cartridge to make a card for her. I also used paper from Recollections All Girl Stack which fits the vibe perfectly.
I cut the numbers from Lyrical Letters and the "Rock On" is from Rock Princess as well. Remarkably, Country Life has almost the exact font that was used for the "Rock On" so I welded together the letters for "It's Your Birthday."

I added the little stars to the numbers and as accents a few places on the card. I pop dotted just about everything on the card and I think it adds a great dimension to the elements. I punched the star border using an EK Success punch that I got for super cheapness!!!

I had to modify the cut from Rock Princess. They way they had her arm on the guitar was extremely weird and nearly physically impossible! So I literally cut her hand off and repositioned it so it looked more natural!

This is my first stair step card and I really like how it turned out! I am sure my sister is going to love everything about it and it fits her personality perfectly!
