Happy Birthday Sister Sue!!

Tomorrow is my sister's birthday.  So, I of course had to make her a card.  She has a beautiful yard complete with a bird bath.  So, I thought this image from Sassy Cheryl's Digi Shop was just the right fit for her card!!  I wanted to do the Challenge over at Runway Inspired Challenge Blog.  I thought this image was just right for that Challenge.  The shape of the birds reminded me of the pattern in the material of the dress.  I colored the image with Copics using bright orange and blue along with neutrals...  I love the way it turned out.  The papers are from a new Paper Pad I recently picked up - Authentique 6x6 Bundle "Fresh".  I especially like the "Parkay" flooring paper - reminds me of a Runway...  I finished the card off with three thin satiny ribbons.  I used the Sketch from {Freshly Made) Sketches.  I am also entering this card in the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog which is "anything but square".
Thanks so much for visiting!!
