Birthday wishes

Hello friends!  My three day weekend is closing in fast which means tomorrow is back to work! Ugh!!

I am working on some cards for a card order I have to get done, so haven't had a chance this weekend to do a new card for my post but I remembered I have a card that I have not posted.  My daughter's birthday (26th) was a couple of weeks ago, and this is the card I did for her.  She is a very plain jane girl, who loves her Mac laptop, so I though this image was perfect for her, and she loved it.

Let me introduce Uptown girl Perry on her laptop.

I'm not one to paper piece often, but this one was fun.  I first stamped her on bella's bestest paper and colour her using copics then cut her out.  I then stamped the chair on dp- Prima - Alla, shaded with  pencils to give it some dimension,  then cut the chair out, then adhered Perry on the chair where her outline was. For the floor boards I used a piece of wood grain dp from a MME 6x6 pad (not sure which one it was).

If you get a chance to play along this week for our challenge - our theme is HALLOWEEN- you can email Emily your card by thursday night for a chance to win $20 in bella bucks.

That's it for me for today, glad you stopped by for a visit.
