Girl On Fire

 
Today's card is a birthday card for a lovely young lady who is turning 13.  She love the Hunger Games books so I couldn't resist using Katniss, Girl on Fire, from Sassy Studio Designs
I wanted her dress to look like it was on fire, just like in the book and the movie.  I colored it in reds, oranges and yellows and then painted the entire dress with extreme glitter paint.  I added some stickles too for a little extra glitter.  I hope all the glitter is evident in the picture.
The bow and arrow are from the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge.  The bow looks a little like a scrolly letter B which is just perfect since the young lady's name who is celebrating her birthday begins with B.
I love the pattern paper for this project.  I have had it for years and never really liked it but it is perfect for this card.  The orange paper actually looks a little like fire.
