My Gabi, I mean Dora Card

Ellie's daughter Gabi is turning one January 3, Gabi and I share a birthday (my birthday is also Jan. 3 how exciting). Gabi's mom has told me that Gabi LOVES Dora so I thought a Dora birthday card would be great. I searched the internet for a Dora coloring page that I could cut and paper piece back together. I found this princess dora and knew she was the one for the card. One a time I had I would get the piece cut out and I kept losing them, Jeff was laughing at me. I must have printed out Dora at least 10 times thats how many times I was losing her pieces. I then searched the internet to get the right colors of her outfit and things, dora's princess outfit is normally yellow (from all the pictures I saw) but I wasn't feeling the yellow so I changed her outfit to be pink and it matches the background paper better. Her pearl necklace and bracelet has bling (stickles) even though its hard to tell in the picture. Its not perfect but I think its cute. The bottom of her dress has pink ric rack!

Inside of the card reads: Happy Birthday, Gabi!

Feliz Cumpleanos!

Now I just got to get the card in the mail to my sweet little Gabi!!
