Birthday Card for a Little Girl Turning 3

This afternoon, we will be attending the birthday celebration of a little girl who is turning 3.  I made this card for her.
The patterned paper is from g-c-d and the cardstock is all Recollections.  I used Ashlyn's Alphabet for the large frame and its shadow, but substituted a fancier inside using Home Decor (done with Design Studio by hiding the contour original oval from Ashlyn's Alphabet and lining up the new image of Home Decor).  I then cut the number 3 (and its shadow) from Jubilee.  I manipulated this a bit in Design Studio to make it fit the frame a bit better.  I ran the back mat through my Cuttlebug using the Polka Dots folder.  I also ran the pink mat behind the number 3 through the same folder.  The top layer of the frame and the number 3 are both popped.  I sugared the top layer of my 3, tied 3 ribbons and added 3 buttons. I loved making this card - perhaps because my favourite number is 3!
I will submit this card at:
