I made this card tonight for the little girl at our corner shop who will be 2 tomorrow. She is very much into pink as her mum keeps telling me - I think she was hinting.
The thing is I do find it hard to do cards for kids - and I have to admit I don't make them for my own kids, I always buy them from the shops (naughty me). I know kids cards should be easy but I really do struggle.

I used
Card - Bazzill from Capture The magic
Image - Dovecraft 6x6 Baby Paper Pack - LCS
Buttons - Market
Glitter - LCS
Punch - LCS

I decoupaged the image and added glitter to the wings and the cloud, then mounted it on to the bazzill card and edged the card with the glitter. I used a circle punch and sewed the buttons onto the circle and attached it to the card using foam pads. Used another bit of bazzill across the bottom half of the card and some more buttons.

The verse inside the card reads - HIP HIP HOORAY, BIRTHDAY CHEERS TO YOU, TODAY IS SPECIAL, BECAUSE YOU ARE TWO! - which I got off the internet ages ago.
