Happy Birthday Katie

Good Morning Everyone!
It's time for a new Ribbon Carousel Challenge and this week is all about Birthday Cards!!
We all need to have a supply of birthday cards on hand so this should be an easy for everyone.

I created a birthday card for my 4 year old daughters best friend, Katie.  Brooke and Katie are the sweetest of friends and love playing together.  Brooke often sits at my table while I stamp "writing letters" and makes cards for Katie.  I used one of my favorite stamps from Belles 'n Whistles, Strawberry Tea and colored her to look just like Katie.  :)  The papers from My Mind's Eye (Madison Avenue) which I pulled out my older sewing machine (epic fail) to add a little machine stitching to the paper panels.  I added some beautiful White Spidy Crocheted Lace from the Ribbon Carousel along the bottom.   

Copics Used
Skin: E15, E13, E11, R02
Hair: C9, C7, C5, C3, C1
Shirt/Bear: RV34, RV32, RV10, RV00
Pants: E43, E42, E21
Stool: E25, E35, E31, YR31

Hopefully my creation has inspired to you play along with us this week at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog Remember, your creation can be anything you'd like, just be sure you use ribbon, bakers twine, lace, thread...(anything that comes on a spool) with a birthday theme.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Just received my email with this latest card and it is absolutely gorgeous! I am such a pinky girly girl and I love this colour scheme ... I just wanted to pass on a Versatile Blogger Award that I was given back in March and have (finally!) managed to get a post finished for it ... I got to choose 15 blogs that have inspired me and I am always inspired by your beautiful work so if you're interested head on over and grab the badge and follow the rules. Cheers ... Julie

This card reminds me of my childhood tea parties with my dollies... I used to have crystal tea set with fresh squeezed orange juice and fresh baked biscuits for my daily afternoon parties!
