Pink in Paris

Hello again, my friends.  I have a quick post to show off a card I made for my niece's 11th birthday party Saturday.  Her birthday theme this year is "Paris". 

My sister-in-law called me earlier this week and asked me to try and find a game or two for the girls to play at her party.  I spent over 4 hours searching online to try and find some Parisian games for them to play.  I couldn't find anything other than matching up the French word with the English word or famous people and places of France. I knew those wouldn't work so I wracked my brain and the only thing I could come up with was Pin the Tail on the Poodle.  Yeah, kinda childish right?  Well, when my SIL told my niece what I had found, she was absolutely thrilled.  I couldn't believe it.  She actually wants to play this game.  Yeah auntie..lol  So, I Googled "Digital Images of Poodles" and let me tell you, you had better be prepared for what comes up. I was totally shocked at some of the images that were displayed.  X-rated for sure.  Be careful what you Google.  So, I looked through some of the digital stamp companies and found this cute little image from Meljen's.

 This is the card I made for Trinity.  I used Recollections All Girl paper pad for the DP and added some black pearls.  The sentiment is my own and I used my Crayolas to color it in.  I used Coordinations card stock for the mats and the card base.  For the game, I enlarged the image to 8x11 and printed it out onto white card stock and pink card stock.  I cut around all the areas that are pink on the card and paper pieced them onto the game board.  I then cut out some black tail poms and numbered them for the girls.  I can't wait to see them play it.  Being as large as it is, if Trinity decides to keep it, she can frame it and hang it on her wall.

Here's a picture of the game board:
I sure hope they have a great time playing tomorrow.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope y'all have a great day!  God bless y'all.
