A Special Birthday Girl!

Yes, this card is for one "cute chick" in particular. Marianne (she does go by "copic lady") has a birthday today! Woohoo! She is such a young thing so she hasn't had as many of these as the rest of us....groan...so we should celebrate!
So in the fun, light spirit that is Marianne I created this "cupcake sketch card" for her today. I used Kim Hughes' Sweet Spring set and YES....I COLORED WITH COPICS...how could I not?!
Notice my little chick shadow? I mixed a couple of patterned paper companies. The black layer is October Afternoon and the background is Basic Grey.
Wishing you a wonderful year Marianne....ENJOY YOUR DAY!

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the cupcake crew came up with:
Stephanie Hargis: Steph's Stampin' Stuff
Vicki Chrisman: This Art that makes me Happy
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Ana Wohlfahrt: Ink A Stamp
Donna Baker: Stamp A Maniac
Jackie Pedro: The Scalloped Edge
Lynn Mercurio: Stamperosity
The cupcake sampler this week is Dana White, you can find her beautiful work HERE!

Enjoy your blog hoppin' and have a great weekend! I have some fun stuff to show you next week!
