Card ministry: Kiddies' cards February 2012

The February 2012 kiddies' cards follow this layout which I CASE'd in the current www.stamptv.com challenge. Here's the challenge link: http://stamptv.ning.com/forum/topics/free-for-all-friday-challenge-case-the-dt-jennie-harper  - Be sure to follow the link to Jennie's page and see her gallery! (Click on Photos in the left-hand column) 

Here's Jennie's card: http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/get-welltrees?context=user
And my version:
I used a lot less layering but the general layout is the same.
I first stamped the wheelbarrow and then created a mask. I use Post-it Notes and stamp over the sticky edge so that I can easily stick and peel off my stamped panel:
The wheelbarrow was paper pieced and the little farm girl colored with coloring pencils.
The number was stamped to correspond with the kid's age for the birthday. Luckily all 3 kids having birthdays in February are girls so I made the same card just with different ages stamped.

Stamps used:
Funny Farm (GinaK)
Calendar Bits & Pieces (GKD)

Materials used:
Memento Tuxedo Black
Scrap paper for paper piecing and cut flower
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Dusty Concord (for the number)
Background DP: BasicGrey, Hopskotch - First Dance
Back panel: Tim Holtz
GinaK 80lb white card stock
Stabilo coloring pencils

Tools used:
Tonic paper trimmer
Corner rounder
