A Birthday Card and a Phone Call!


 A Closer Look!
 Another view!
I made this birthday card for a special young lady at church. Her mom even called me to make sure I was bringing her a card! LOL! That is a first for me. I am glad she likes my cards! This is the first time I have colored this image from SC. I had a fun time figuring out all those lovely curls. I will definitely be coloring this one again as I need the practice on curls and hair! I used a SU die to cut my scalloped edge and then embossed it with a heart SU embossing folder. My background is a gold shimmer paper at I  buy in bulk form from Paper Express. I embossed it, but I can't remember the name of the folder. The lovely lace I found at JoAnns. I added liquid pearls to the image and to my frame for the sentiment.  My beautiful little butterfly is a sticker and the sentiment is an old one that came in a box of six tiny stamps. Just a fun card for a special young lady. 
My Song: From West side Story
Tonight, tonight, 
Won't be just any night, 
Tonight there will be no morning star. 
Tonight, tonight, I'll see my love tonight. 
And for us, stars will stop where they are.

Gorgeous colouring and I really like that auburn hair. Hair is so hard to colour but you've aced this because it's such a nice colour and lots of shine. Great layout, image and design too.

Oh Yes....such a lovely compliment. It's gorgeous! I have some questions. Paper Express...is that local and you use that much to buy in bulk? Next, gorgeous blues....which ones did you use? Lastly, not a question....the lace is gorgeous!
