Happy Happy


My youngest granddaughter's 17th birthday is coming up and I wanted to use one of Krista's sweet Saturated Canary girls for her birthday card.  Krista's girls are just the cutest & have so much personality...........just like my granddaughter.  (She can be a pistol.....lol)  This one is called Pack Light.  She's actually sitting cross-legged on top of her luggage but I just wanted to use her cute little face.  Her beautiful long hair is just like my Shaye's.  Just darling as can be.  Happy Birthday, Shaye!!! (btw.......YAY.......she loved her card....especially the hair......lol.....I knew she would........lol)

I've colored her with my Copics & used lots of gray DP from a new MME paper pad that I hadn't used yet.  I also used a new diecut rounded tag set from Sizzix that I got for my birthday recently. It comes with 8 dies. The larger ones look like big arches that would be perfect for main images on a card. I'll definitely be using a lot of these dies.  The sentiment came from Create with TLC.  Paulette is always so very generous with her sentiments & graphics.

I used this beautiful sketch from The Sweet Stop.  They also added a spin to the sketch challenge.........tell what movie or book inspired your card.  Well the first movie that popped into my head is one of my favorites..........."13 Going on 30".  That describes my granddaughter to a tee.  (Although she's really 17 going on 35.......hahaha)
