Birthday Chick

Hi there!  Happy Wednesday!  We're halfway to Friday!  It's been a very stormy day here with lots of rain and thunderstorms, so I haven't been on the computer much.  I cowered in my craft room and managed to finish up a card for a couple of challenges.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Turquoise See and the patterned paper is from the Echo Park This & That 6x6 pad.  My birthday chick is Ava from Saturated Canary.  You can find her in Krista's store here.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some Fruit Punch Stickles to her bow and Diamond Stickles the the little layer of lace on her outfit.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I added lots of Wild Orchid Crafts floweres (15 mm Pink Tone Roses, 25 mm Pink Tone Roses, Mixed Open Roses and a stem of White Gypsophila).  A turquoise satin ribbon bow finished my birthday card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope I'll get by to see you soon if I haven't already!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Wild Orchid Crafts #82 (birthday party)
Sunday Sketch and Stamp #167 (Sam's sketch)
Incy Wincy Challenge (birthdays and balloons)
