Hope You Have a 'Wicked' Birthday

Hi All!  Boy, it's been a little while huh?  My life's been kind of interesting of late...things are still crazy at work with my schedule being so all over the place sometimes I'm not sure if I'm coming or going!  And I think my body decided it needed to take matters into its own hands so then I got one of the worst colds I've had in a long time which actually forced me to slow down a bit.  But now I'm on the mend and trying to find some time for me in the midst of all my commitments :)

Enough life talk, what do you say we get to a card?!?  I'm dying to share this one with you as it incorporates some of my very favorite things!  First I used a Saturated Canary image called Elphie because the card was for my mom's birthday and since we both LOVE the broadway show Wicked I knew I wanted to do something along those lines for her :)  I paired my adorable image, that I colored up with my trusty Copics, with some Graphic 45 Wizard of Oz paper and an awesome Tim Holtz die cut that I got in a piece of 'happy mail' from one of my favorite blogging buddies Eulanda- thanks girlfriend!  After some finishing touches of bling (of course) and some twine I was dying to give this to my mom- and I'm happy to share that she loved it as much as I hoped she would :)
