One for a Friend

Happy Tuesday!

The sun is shining and the weather is still slightly warm, hopefully it will be a nice day! I have some work to do, so I only have a couple minutes. Hope you're having a good morning.

I want to share a card that I created for someone special who is celebrating a birthday today! I have to apologize to this special someone, I don't think my card is going to make it on time. Poor planning on my part! Hopefully she'll know I was thinking of her and when my card does arrive it will make her smile.

I went right for this sweet Swiss Pixie image, which always brings a smile to my face. She's been colored with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen and Spica glitter pen. The papers are BasicGrey Wisteria and some eggplant and lavender cardstock. The sketch is from this week's Friday Sketchers. I've added faux stitching with my gel pen, which fits the challenge at Simon Says Stamp. Lastly, I embellished with some purple Prima flowers with metal flower spacers and rhinestone brads and then some ribbons and a dragonfly charm.

I just noticed that my photo is slightly crooked, my card wasn't though! LOL! So much for photography in my future!

Have a great day and happy stamping! :)
