Oh Happy Day!

Wowsers!!! My precious youngest granddaughter, Shaye, is turning 15 years old today! I cannot believe it's been 15 years since my beautiful daughter gave birth to our Shaye. She's still our Baby Girl since she is the youngest in our little family. What a character she is. She's beautiful, funny, smart & so very talented with a quick wit. She's such a joy to have around. This picture shows her cute personality.

Sooooooo I thought I'd make Shaye a cute Tilda card in her FAVorite color.........purple! This was so much fun to make. I used the darling Magnolia stamps 'Tilda goes shopping' and 'Boutique' from the beautiful Bon Voyage collection. You can get them both at Diana's store Magnolia-licious.

I used a digi image for the 'Oh Happy Day' button that I got from the amazingly talented Paulette from Create with TLC. She also offers many freebies of her beautiful Word Art & graphics on her blog 'Create with TLC'. If you haven't been to her are really missing out. She is so generous with her artwork. Thank you, Paulette!

Now onto the other details of this card:
Punch: 'Daisy chain' EK Success
Nesties ‘Classic Scalloped Circles large’ diecut (can't live without my Nesties)
Tim Holtz ‘Tonic Paper Distress tool’ (I love this tool)
Inkssentials ‘Ink blending tool’ with foam (love it)
Distress Ink: Dusty Concord (dark purple)
Stardust Stickles glitter glue (my absolute FAVorite) (it looks like a 'glob of Stickles is on the necklace in the Boutique window but I promise you it doesn't look like that IRL......hahaha)
DP: from my stash
Copics used:
Skin: E000, E0000, E21, R20
Hair: E30, E31, E41, E35
V000, V12, V15, BG0000, C0, C1, C3

I'm also entering this in a few challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday: #7 Anything Goes (up to 3 entries)
Stamp Something: Use a digi image (my Oh Happy Day button)
Colour Create Challenge Blog: Challenge #56 ~ Purple, Aqua & White

As always...........thank you for looking & your sweet comments always make my day a little sweeter!

Huggies & Blessings ~♥♥♥~

Hi Sharron, oh my, what a fabulous card! And absolutely perfect for a young miss turning 15 and thinks shopping is higher up the list than breathing! The coloring is beautiful and I'm thinking Shaye is going to be thrilled with it. BTW, she is just a gorgeous girl, and her personality shines out of her beautiful face!
