Happy Birthday, Delphine!

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend and your week is off to a terrific start!  I am popping in this morning to share a birthday card I made for a someone special over in the Make it Crafty Facebook group.  It's Delphine's birthday and we are celebrating by making her a birthday card using a new image by Make it Crafty that was named after her!

Here is my card for Delphine:

My card base and mats are SU Island Indigo and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Collectable " Unforgettable" 6x6 pad.  The fun image is Artistic Delphine from the new Carefree Women Digi Collection from Make it Crafty.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Just a few pearls from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of Delphine:

Copic Colors:
Skin: E50, E51, E21, E11, BV20
Hair: E50, E53, E43, E57 
Top: R81, R83, R85, R89
Dress: B000, B02, B05, B07, B09
Stockings: YR20, YR21, YR23, YR24
Beret and Shoes: E41, E42, E43, E44, E47

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be around to visit once I've gotten a few things done this morning.
