dora the explorer

dora is a bit of a favourite at our place
miss 4 especially adores her
i have no idea as she drives me bonkers!!!
but she asked me for a dora card and a dora cake AND dora cupcakes AND dora toys AND...AND....
it is her birthday this week so i will indulge her a bit
it's not every day you turn 4 after all :)
 so here is dora in punch art as a card that i will attach to a canvas to put on her wall.
the background of the card is big top birthday dsp
the ribbon is not stampin up (just in case you were wondering lol)
 dora is made using the following punches
full heart -hair, sleeves
xl oval-face, tummy
ornament-t-shirt middle
word window-arms, legs, backpack straps, nose, eyes (white), shoes, sox, neck
itty bitty shapes circle-eyes (brown)
3/4" circle-mouth
spring blossoms-fingers, shoelaces
boho blossoms-sox
1 1/4" square-shorts
stamp set used is happiest birthday wishes (a hostess set)
which has a whole heap of great birthday sayings perfect for birthday cards 
 i added a teeny bit of white gel pen to the eyes to make her have her special little sparkle
 close up of the fingers using one of the flowers from the spring blossoms punch (now retired unfortunately). just cut 1 petal off, then miss one 
and then cut out 2 more and you get a hand...
of sorts anyways lol
boho blossoms flower for the top of her sox.
two word windows placed on top of each other 
and then petals from a spring blossoms punch for the shoe laces

cheers ears

ps i have made the type a bit bigger to read-let me know if this works for whoever is reading it:>

Happy birthday to your sweet 4 year old - I do know what you mean about Dora! When my son was growing up - it was those awful teletubbie things - drove me nuts! Love your card - and the big print!
