Happy Birthday!

Actually the big birthday season is over in my house - this is a card that I made for one of my monthly card groups. I got the sketch from Card Sketch A Day blog - great blog! Marji sent the kit and the papers are so much fun and it all fell right into place with the sketch. They were meant to be together.



I started with a basic white base. Cuttlebugged a piece of Real Red card stock with the Happy Birthday folder. Marji embossed the image which made it so easy to color. I used a slew of Prismacolor Markers and the card went together in no time. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I hope you like it and I please go visit the friends over at Card Sketch A Day. Have a super duper weekend.
