Happy Birthday Karen!

Today is a very special day for a special's Karen's Birthday!  Happy Birthday, my friend!!

I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge SSSC121Flower Girl is inked up in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I colored her with copics.  Of course I HAD to paper piece her cute little outfit and I used my GellyRoll Stardust pen for a bit of sparkle on her trim.  I used TE Spa Key Ingredients kit - so pretty and I love that everything matches, from the paper to the ribbon to the embellishments.  I used, what I think is :) , Karen's favourite embossing folder - swiss dots - on the circle and my new Lacy Squares nestie which I am still in love with!  I did a little sewing around the edge and was going to try sewing the circle but chickened out at the last minute :) !  A trio of Bella dots and some sponging around the edges to soften it and it's done.

Confession time:  Karen and Dana always help me with my editing/watermark BUT I clearly couldn't ask Karen :) and Dana was away so I had to give it a go on my own - scary!

Wishing you a wonderful birthday Karen!  Please hop on over to Karen's blog and wish her a Happy Birthday too!
