Happy Birthday, Ann!

Yesterday was a coworker's birthday. We're having a lunch/party for her at work tomorrow and I offered to make the birthday card.  As long as I was making a card, I figured....why not knock out a few challenges at the same time? =D  So, I took this GORGEOUS image from A Day For Daisies that was a freebie over at CDAC's Other Theme Challenge, got a sketch from Papertake Weekly, and I was ready to go.  Here's the sketch:

sketch #56

And here's my card:


As I mentioned, the image is from A Day for Daisies.  Her hair and skin were colored with Copics.  The dress and wings were paper pieced.  The flower is from Prima.  I added pink jewels to the feathered headdress and the edges of her wings.  I also added some little pearls as a belt.  The smaller pink background paper was embossed using a Sizzix folder.

So, there it is.  I really hope she likes it!

Challenges:
CDAC Other Theme Challenge: Pretty in Pink (Paper Piecing Optional)
Papertake Weekly: Sketch
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Flower Power
Top Tip Tuesday: Wrap it Up with Ribbons
Fab 'n' Funky: Anything Goes
Digistamps4joy: On the Wings of a...
Cute Card Thursday: Embellish It
Charisma Cards: Something that Flies

Fantastic card!! And yes, I am counting down the weeks and days til this baby is ready to come out! I'm still trying to figure out how to tell the landlord I'm pregnant and why I didn't tell him when we signed the lease back in April! I'm dreading the hot summer because our central air doesn't work and we don't have the kind of windows we can put our air conditioners in!
