For Maci, a special 8 year old

I saw this information a bit late, but still want to make a card to send to a special girl.  Maci will be 8 on the 20th.  She is the daughter of one of the wounded veterans who was killed in a tragic accident during a
parade last November.  (See the Graphicat link for more details and how to get the address if you want to send a belated card.)
I used this House Mouse image - what 8 year old does not want to play dress up?  The sentiment is part of a freebie from Graphicat.  I cut bits of Debbie Mumm DP - another case of DP I really like that is quite difficult to use.  I chose springy colors, including the purple bg.  The card is 4.5x6, and there will be a birthday sentiment inside.
Card for Maci:
 Adorable animals:
Cuddly Critter (OK, this is a stretch - these are cute but maybe not too cuddly LOL!!!):
