Ariel Card

Our trip to Dallas in August was also intended to celebrate Layla's 4th birthday. Unfortunately, Layla was running a fever and her birthday celebrations had to be rescheduled. Anyway, above is her card. I thought she would really like Ariel.

I didn't want to just plop Ariel on the card, so I decided to layer some of the sea plants. And what's a little girl's card without glitter?

I had a lot of trouble with her eyes but finally used Stickles for the pupils and took care of that. I selected the Wish on Gypsy Wanderings for my sentiment cut at 1.25.

I wanted some dimension to the card, so I used the 3-d glue dots to pop Ariel and pop dots for Wish.

We were able to spend some time with Layla and present her with her gifts and card, all of which she loved. Along with the gifts Denise and Brian got her, they kept her busy most of the night.

I'll have to remember to make Avalee a special card next year. Her birthday was a few weeks ago. We knew we wouldn't be able to go back but gave her gifts to her while we were there. Although she loved her first very own Barbie, she really wanted the cars we gave Ben. Sure do miss all of them!

This is very beautiful. I love the way you layered it with the sea plants. Great idea. I have made this Ariel before and the eyes were really a "pain". I am sure the receipiant will treasure her card.
