A Lot of Happy Birthday

Hi there!  Happy Sunday!  Hope you've had a nice weekend!  It was gorgeous here and I just got home a bit ago, so I'm just now getting a chance to share a card with you.  It is another inspiration post for my GD stint with the Make it Crafty Facebook group.   I have two "inspirations" for you.  One is for the MiC FB group monthly challenge, which for April is  to create a birthday card.  I am also showcasing the digi that is only $1 this month if you are a member of the Facebook group. Head on over there and join up if you haven't already and you will get a code that will get you the fun digi for just $1!  It doesn't get better than that and you get tons of MiC inspiration and fun chat to boot!
Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Bermuda Bay and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Kate & Co. Cambridge Court 6x6 pad.  The cute image is Lizzie With Gift from Make it Crafty.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some polka dot ribbon and a few leopard print gems from my stash finished my card.
Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  If you love Make it Crafty like I do, you'll definitely want to head over to the Make it Crafty Facebook page and check out the fabulous inspiration from the amazing DT!  There's always a fun challenge every month and a $1 digi, too!  Don't miss out!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday Challenge (birthday theme with optional topping of white on white)
Time Out Challenge #3 (birthday with option to make it masculine)

Enjoy the rest of the day and see you soon!
