Happy Birthday...

Happy birthday to me!  OK, so it's really just another day.  Birthdays used to be fun for me, but now I need them to stop.  LOL

So I am the last stop on the Paper Pretties Birthday Blog Hop.  I hope you enjoyed the hop as much as I have.  The stamps over at Paper Pretties are awesome!!  Have you been just drooling over the new stamp release sneak peeks like I have?  Wow!!

Well, here's a birthday card I made, not for myself, but to just celebrate birthdays in general.  My card is made with a digi stamp called Feronia.  I made it using a great sketch from Just Us Girls.


I think she is just too cute and this card would be perfect for a little girl.   I started to make it for my Monthly Card Traders group, but cards take on a life of their own and this fun little fairy decided she was playing in a different challenge.

Supplies:
Card stock: Neenah Classic Crest, Lavender Lace, Bashful Blue (SU!), White (Recollections)
Paper: Glitter Mat Stack (DCWV)
Copics: B00, B000, B02, BV00, BV02, BV04, RV000, RV02, RV10, YG00, YG03, YG06, YG09, YG17
Stamps/Ink: Limitless Labels (PTI), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tools: Circle Cutters (CM)
Embellishments: ribbon (Offray)

Thank you for stopping by today and hopping with us!
