It's Birthday Time!

It's birthday time for my grandson Jacob so of course I had to hand make his card.  He is very into Karate so what better image than  Karate Tilda to use. Isn't she adorable? I tried to elliminate that pigtails but didn't have much success so a girl it is!  Jacob will be turning 12 next Sunday- I can't believe it-he was just born!  Jessica and Brian decided to have a party for him this year and he has asked if he can bring his girlfriend.  Isn't that cute?  Of course there will be no dating but they talk on the phone and hang out at school.  They don't want anyone to know about them because they don't want to be teased.  You know how middle school can be!  For this card I colored her with Copics, making her belt green to match his level.  I made my own Washi tape using 1" scor tape, some tissue paper, and some background stamps.  It was so much fun!  The possiblilities are endless.  I got the idea from the Monday Make It video over at Papertrey Inc. 
I die cut the number twelve in black and green so I could have a shadow effect and tied a bright green bow for my accent.  What do you think?  It sure is nice to be back!!!!  Love, Elle
