Happy days!

Good evening all. Just thought I'd share the card I have made for my lovely daughter's fast approaching birthday. I was lost for inspiration until I found these lovely digis at Digital Pencil Too,
these little beauties could have been modelled on my gorgeous grandaughters! Daughter and family are eagerly anticipating their first holiday abroad together a few days after her birthday, so the idea for the card just sort of fell into place!
I used the stepper card technique that I was taught at a recent card class, coloured and cut out the little girls (I've added glossyaccents to sunglasses, but it doesn't show in photo!)  and attached them to the middle step. The sun is just a punched paper circle with a smiley face drawn on and 'rays' attached to the back, 2 little clouds and some die cut letters (happy days) complete the backdrop.
The flipflops (daughters favourite footwear!) are cut out from a designer paper I had in my stash, just added some tiny buttons to finish. I hope she likes this card as much as I enjoyed making it!
