A Card for Jill


Wow, it seems like forever since I've made a card ... there just aren't enough hours in the day!! Anyway, I finally had a chance to spend some time in my craft room and make this birthday card. Isn't this just the cutest image? It's a digital from Mo Manning ... you can see all her images here. I chose this image because she looks amazing like a girl my daughter grew up with (I really shouldn't call her a girl anymore as she just celebrated her 25th birthday) and I thought she would enjoy a card that looked her. I colored the image with Copics and added a little glitter to the skirt. The papers and ribbon are from Stampin' Up and the little butterfly is a button from WalMart. I used the swiss dots Cuttlebug folder and the tag was cut with my Nestibilities. The sentiment is a stamp from Papertrey Ink's Mega Messages set. Lots of fun to make, and with any luck, it won't be another month before I make it to my craft room again!
