When I was little...

My big sisters birthday is coming & I wanted to make her a special card. I have 4 big sisters, actually, & I am the "baby". :) They all had a hand in raising me & I wanted to grow up to be just like all of them. I borrowed their clothes, makeup, jewelry...anything I could get my hands on. I wanted so bad, to be a grown-up. Now, I wonder why I was in such a hurry! :)
For my card, I made a Center Step Card. A tutorial can be found @ SCS HERE. The sentiment is computer generated & says, "When I was little, I wanted to look just like you..." Inside says, "Luckily, I got over that!"  lol
Digi : Pretty Gillian by Prairie Fairy Designs
Coloring : Copics
Paper : Basic Grey
Embelli's : Recollections (flowers), 2 Step Bird Punch- SU! (leaves), Basic Jewels- SU!
I used some Crystal Effects on her sunglasses & glitter on her tutu.
I used the freebie, Big Bloom from the Fun Flowers set by Designed2Delight. I popped-up  the center of the flower with dimensional's & added some Crystal Effects to make it shiny.
I am entering my card @
DYSU? - Use lots of orange
PaperPlay Challenges - Summer Citrus Splash
Creative Card Crew - For a Diva
