Happy Birthday to You!

Hi All!  I'm sitting here with the Grammy Awards playing in the background after a long day of card making feeling pretty good about what I was able to get done today.  I'll probably spread the posts out so as not to overwhelm but I couldn't wait to share this gem!  I'm going to be entering it into the Tickled Pink Challenge Blog for their Birthday Wishes challenge which meant I get to use a Tickled Pink image and I've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use Lil Birthday Kellita (grab it here)!  I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers which was a blast with all it's layers and it really let me play without detracting from my image which I love.  It's kinda funny because when I colored my image I got almost done, all that was left was the present, and had a head scratching moment for what color to make it (I hadn't picked out my paper yet) but as soon as I thought of this line of papers with the orange and pink I knew in an instant that I needed to make the present orange and I'm so happy with how it turned out!


This is one of those cards that I wish I could keep for myself but it's already spoken for!  Guess I'll just have to make another one :)

Challenges I'm entering:
*Tickled Pink Challenges- Birthday Wishes
*Friday Sketchers
*Paper Sundaes- Any 2 or more of Flowers, Lace, Distressing and Pink- I've done Flowers made of Lace and (lots of) Pink
 Supplies: Image- Tickled Pink Lil Birthday Kellita Digi; Sentiment- Deja Views Wonderful Words Rub-On Birthday; All DP- Sei Winnie's Walls; Lace Flowers- Prima; Ribbon- Pebbles; Epoxy Button Stickers- Heidi Grace; Embroidery Floss- my stash
