Today was the last day of what I call "Birthday Season" at our house!!
My 8 year old had her birthday sleepover tonight and we had so much fun!!
Tomorrow will be back to reality which will be a welcome change of pace from parties each week!!

Here's the card that I made for my daughter:
I combined 2 of the Wendy Burns sets from MFT.  
One set for the image and sentiment and the other set for the flowers that I made into a little garden. 
I'm really keen on how the grass turned out, but I got a little nutty with the liquid pearls
and practically covered the small blooms in their entirety!!
Why, oh why do I do things like that at the end of the creation process!??!

Here are the products that I used on my card:

Here is the blog hop order & **Joni** is up next.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
All Dressed Up: Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes

  7. Nicole, the hardest thing for me to color is dark and bold..like your style, i don't seem to get it right..i love your style. My copics also get shiny if i "saturate" too much color..you must have a system that helps you with that because you are able to make your images awesomely!
