Happy Birthday Dear One

The weeks roll by quickly! It is already time for a new challenge over at PanPastel UK. For week # 4, the theme is "Happy Birthday." I am new to Pan Pastels, and trying to expand my skills so I decided to try using a resist ink on my card panel before sponging on a variety of yellow and turquoise Pan Pastels. The background stamp is from Crafty Individuals and came to me free as a thank you for ordering some other stamps! For the main image, I stamped CI-84, also from Crafty Individuals and colored the little girls in with Copic Markers. The sentiment, by Hero Arts, wishes a Happy Birthday to the recipient. Embellishments include lace, ribbon, a doily, German Scrap and a paper heart and ribbon flower buds by Martha Stewart. I really am so glad that I found out about Pan Pastels and scouring the Internet for video "How To's." Thanks so much for stopping by. Yvonne

This is brimming with sweetness.
Just a thought but you could enter this into the Crafty Individuals challenge. The colours are so appropriate for the Spring theme and of course you did use CI stamp.
