Birthday Card #3

Hello again!  Here's the third birthday card I made in the past few days.  I think this is it for the week...probably more next week, but my dad's coming into town on Friday.  It's his first time meeting Bear, so we're very excited to have him for the weekend.

This card is for a good friend of mine who is having a birthday party on Friday.

The inside:

One of my extremely talented blogger friends (Tracy)* recently created a card using the image Starla from Saturated Canary. As I have previously mentioned, I am a huge SC fan, but have not been able to stock up on many images due to financial constraints, and due to the baby, I have not been able to keep up on my blogs.  Well, I had never seen this stamp before.  I decided since it shares my name (and it's cuter than hell) I just HAD to have it.  So, I jumped over and bought it right away.  I wanted to use it immediately, so I thought it would be perfect for my friend Tracy's birthday. (A different Tracy.)

I colored the image with Copics, Spica markers, and added Stickles and Glossy Accents.  The sentiments are random stamps from my stash, and I can't think of the companies right now, but I thought that inside sentiment was just PERFECT for this image.  The papers are from DCWV and Stampin' Up, and the button is from my stash.  The sketch I used is from The Sweet Stop.

Ok, thanks so much for stopping by!  I've been asked to do a few more cards, so I will probably have a couple more posts next week.  In the meantime...stay crafty!

*I just realized, I gave credit to the wrong blogger friend!  Oh, I feel just horrible.  I saw the card on Facebook and got the names mixed up.  The actual card I saw inspiring me to buy this image was by the incredibly gifted Regan over at Charmed Stamping.  The card that inspired me can be found on her post here.  My bad, Regan!! Big hugs!
