Priscilla's big day!

This will be a birthday card for my grandaughter even though her birthday is a few months away yet. I wanted to introduce my girl sock monkey Priscilla and she is definitely having birthday cheer by the look on her face LOL! And dig that smart looking hat!!!

Her outfit came from the SU DSP Sweet Always and the other patterned paper came from SU Urban Garden. The colours I used are Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Basic Grey and Whisper White.

All my number stamps are packed so I used the Big Shot and a die to punch the number 5. My glitter is packed too but when I get to it again, I will put glitter on the icing on the cupcake to spark it all up. The scalloped edge was made using the scallop edge punch and again I used my punches here - five of them!!

It was fun to just fiddle here and paper piece the monkey etc. She is stamped on Basic Grey.
