Pink and Purple are her Favourite

Our little niece that's here in the city (not the nieces in the US) just turned three.  She's always told me that her favourite color was purple, but when I asked her about it the other day then suddenly pink and green were in the running too.   The more she thought about it she said, no it was pink and purple that were her favourites :)  Not necessarily my favs, but who am I to argue with a 3 year old?


So, a pink and purple scooter and little girl is what she got for her Birthday card.  These cute sets from There She Goes are called Scootin' By and Scootin' By Accessories.  

I seem to have a theme this week as well, paper piecing combined with Copics.  I've pieced her dress with some Basic Grey paper and colored the rest with Copics.  Her hair matches the color of my nieces hair and I've added 3 balloons for her 3rd BD, tied with jute.  The card is 6 x 6 in size, that way all of us could write her a little message.  This is last weeks Deconstructed Sketch from Jen.  


One last detail shot of the coloring...


She's pretty cute :)  And so's my niece.  Here she is on her big day with her daddy (my brother).  He calls this her "dodgy look".  :)  


Back late Thursday night with the Flourishes March Pre-Release Challenge!
