Did you ever see a digi that you love, but think, "I have no one to make this for".  I absolutely Love Stef's AKA Glitterbabe's, (badge top left) Robot.  But to me it speaks "Boy Card" and we have no young boys in our family any more.  

So I challenged my self to use the digi in a creative way and I love the outcome.  i actually made a girl birthday card out of it.  I started coloring the heart heart and just had fun.  Alot of layers, pink plaid DP, colored with Copics, used Stampin Up stamps Oh Hello and Pretty Petites for the Birthday sentiment.  Stampin Up Chevron embossing folder.

I cant wait to give this card to my cousin's daughter, she will love it!
