Good morning!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope you are having a good week so far.  The weather here is cool and rainy - definitely not the nice Spring weather we had over the weekend!  We might even get a freeze tonight!  I shouldn't complain, though, as I've seen that some of my friends and family have snow!  Crazy!  Anyway, I've got a busy afternoon, so I am here with a quick post to share a card I made for a friend, but which fits a couple of challenges I enjoy doing.

Here it is:

My card base and mats are SU Rose Red and the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Kate & Co. Cambridge Court 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Anna Belle Birthday Wishes from Tiddly Inks.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added a bit of Buttercup Liquid Pearls to the flames on the candles.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I added a Sweetheart Blossoms, Cosmos Daisies and a Carnation from Wild Orchid Crafts.  A double-loop satin bow and a couple of gems from my stash finished my card.
Here is a close-up of Anna Belle:

Thanks for stopping by!  I should be able to catch up with you a little later when I get home.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Wild Orchid Challenge #101 (3 different flowers)
Sketch N Stash Challenge #137 (sketch)
Tiddly Inks Challenge #131 (celebrate)

Here is the sketch:
