Stephanie's Bella-Birthday

This card came together SO fast, I can still barely believe it!  Dana sent me a card a few years ago with this layout and because I keep all my handmade cards, it's easy to look in the box for inspiration or CASEing :) .
I had put Dana's card out on my desk with the papers and the image to make Stephanie's card.  Well, as happens in my life....one day, two days, three days went by and I realized I had better make her card or else she wasn't going to get it in time.  Fortunately, as I said, I had all the elements ready so got down to work and in under an hour it was done!  It's funny because "non-cardmakers" often ask me how long it takes to make a card and I can never really give an answer but when you're copying a super card (thanks Dana) it's easy!

I used SU So Saffron, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White and some old Designer Series Paper.  A couple of Prima flowers, a Bella Dot and of course, glitter, some sponging around the edge of the nestie to soften it and Cuppacakeabella was done!  I coloured her with Copics but forgot to take the copic photo - oops.  Happy Birthday Steph!

Cheerio.....Leslie
