All in the Family Birthday

While I still had Erin's "All in the Family" stamp set, I decided to make another card. This is for my great niece who won't be two until November! I wish I could say that I had all the other cards that I need between now and then done, but I don't. I saw this card on Splitcoast Stampers and I knew I had to make something similar for Anya. I quite proud of the fact that I didn't copy it as much as I have for other cards.

I really like the VersaFine ink, but it was a poor choice for this project. Because you build the people you really need to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig, but the VersaFine ink needs time to dry so it took a long time to make this card... well longer than my usual long time.

I'm wondering if I should have stuck some patterned paper behind the little girl image. It's too late to take it off now as it is stuck for good!
Thanks for looking,
