Happy Birthday (Sarah Kay)

I have been waiting awhile to have some time to do a card that wasn't CAS and to pull out my copics and sit and color. Well that opportunity arose today with a little rain :). I was inspired by the Outlawz alcohol marker theme - Hot Summer Fun! This sweet Sarah Kay image is one of my favourites. The card stock is Gina K and MFT and the DP is Echo Park. The bling is CTMH and the greetings are from two different Gina K sets. Ribbon is from Michaels.

Close Up - can you see the sparkle in the flower centres, her bow on her hat, pocket & belt?
A card this sweet needed a cute envelope - Simon Says Stamps for envelope
