I have a stamp with that sentiment and it's going to be my new catch phrase for birthdays from here on out! But in this case, she really IS Vintage, Violet Vintage from Saturated Canary! This cutie was just begging to be colored up for a birthday card! The cool thing is she even looks a little like the recipient! She is colored with Copics and cut out with the Romantic Rectangles Nestabilities from Spellbinders. Papers are My Mind's Eye - Follow Your Heart: Be Amazing, and all I added were some flowers and half pearls. The fabulous layout is from Sketch N Stash (#119). The items from my stash are my flowers, particularly the lovely blue tulle one with the pearl center. That has been kicking around for over a year but every time I attempted to add it to a project it wasn't quite right. Until now!
I have a backlog of birthday cards waiting to be made right now! August and September are very busy months and being the procrastinator that I am I never get a head start on the birthday rush. So I apologize to everyone in advance for late or non-existent cards! A girl can only do so much in a day! And last night, after my long day at work, a little bit of couch time was needed. I was able to catch up on a couple of DVRed shows, but rest assured that I have images printed and ready to be colored! I am a crafter with a plan!
I hope your week is off to a fabulous start and thanks for visiting!
