Happy Birthday Makayla!

Tonight we celebrated my oldest granddaughter's seventh birthday!!  WhooHoo!!  I made this birthday card for her....I showed a picture of it to my husband tonight after all the festivities were over and he said.....Wow.. that actually looks like Makayla!!  I have to agree except...her beautiful blonde hair is not quite that tame!  She has naturally curly hair that is just ALL OVER THE PLACE!!!  But she does have those darling freckles and loves anything pink, frilly, and girly!!  She is a very creative, thoughtful, loving girl at the early age of seven.  Her favorite thing at the moment is to play "store' so her mom & dad gave her a cash register, fake money & coins, comes complete with a credit card that when swiped says "your credit has been approved...OH MY!!!  DANGER AHEAD!!  Anyway..here's the card...and here is Makayla!!  I used a "Kidz Balloon" Bugaboo Image, colored her with Prisma Pencils, used cardstock stash. Flower ribbon is felt..distributed by Michaels Stores Inc (had around forever & never used)!  The white pearls are new ..from Doodlebug Design Inc. Don't remember the sentiment stamp, but was framed by the 1 1/2 Paper Studio punch in white, the 1 3/4 Stampin Up punch in pink, and the 2 inch Paper Studio Punch in "chocolate.
What do you think??
