Hippie Birthday

It is a pretty important week here!  My small man had a birthday and a couple of good friends are going to get hitched on Saturday!  But even with all the other excitement going on, I couldn't forget my best friend's oldest daughter!  Her birthday is the day after my son's, and she turned 14 this year!  I remembered that during one of our Summer excursions she had mentioned she liked the 60s.  She thinks its cool.  Well, alright then.  It was an easy decision to use Hippie Chick from Sassy Studio Designs to make her card!  And since SSD was sponsoring the sketch for Seems A Little Sketchy (#22) this week,  it seemed perfect for my layout!   I rotated the sketch a quarter turn, however, to accommodate my design. 

Hippie Chick is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers.  She is fussy cut and popped up with foam squares.  Papers are My Mind's Eye - Dolled Up.  I love them paired with this image for a groovy retro feel!  I added some flowers, a bling flourish, and a couple of glittered chipboard accents (the peace sign and numbers).

I did decorate the inside of the card but I forgot to snap a picture of it before I gave it to her.  That's all I've got for you today.  I'm wiped out and I still need to sit down and make a design team card.  No rest for the weary! Or is it wicked?  Well, whatever, either way, sleep is a ways off yet!  lol  Hope everyone is having a good week so far and thanks for stopping by!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E04, R20, E33, Y32, Y35, YR07, YG95, B00, B02, B34, B37, B39) and Prismacolor Art Markers (137, 150, 169).
