Another Birthday Card

This is another birthday card for one of our great-granddaughters birthday in May. She will be 5 and looks kind of like this sweet Swiss Miss Rosalie by C.C. Designs stamps.  I used Promarkers and PrismaColor Pencils to color the image and add some grass.  I inked around the image with SU Bashful Blue ink while it was still in the oval nestie and mounted it on a scalloped oval.  The DP is from MME Stella & Rose Hazel pad, and is matted with SU Choc. Chip. The card base is SU Crumb Cake (Kraft).  The sentiment is from a MFT Jolinne set matted with Choc. Chip nestie tag and SU Pretty In Pink taffeta ribbon. The roses are by Recollections from Michael's and I added some MS fern punches. 
I am entering this card in Jeanie's "That's Krafty Thursday" challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and I would love any comments you care to make. Thanks.

This is a photo of our family taken around 1972. I have been wanting to make a layout using it for awhile and finally did it.  I used all Basic Gray papers from the Granola pad and inked all the edges with SU Soft Suede ink. The flowers are made with the Sizzix Tattered Florals die by Tim Holtz. The leaves are from the Build A Blossom SU stamp & punch set. I also used the MS fern punch and an EK Success border punch.  The swirl and title are cut from the Home Decor cartridge on my Cricut.

I would like to wish everyone a Blessed Easter.
