happy belated birthday, anita!

Hello everyone!  Here with a birthday card for a lovely bloggy friend, Anita.  Her birthday was actually last month, but Bev though it would be nice to have a little linky party for her.  I don't normally join in these birthday party links (for various and sundry reasons), but Anita is such a sweet bloggy friend that I just had to join in to wish her a very happy (but belated) birthday!   So last night I got out my Copics (haven't used them in ages!) and colored up this image from the Taylored Expressions Stargazer Lily Bouquet set.  After I finished coloring the image I trimmed it out.  The layout for the card is based on the current CAS(E) this Sketch layout.  For a bit of drama I decided to cut my banner from some black and white polka dot paper.  The sentiment (from a different TE set) was stamped on a little tag die cut using the PTI Tiny Tags die.  I adhered that and added the pink twine bow.  Finished things off with some pink and clear sequins.
Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; PP:  Echo Park; Stamps:  Taylored Expressions; Dies:  PTI Tiny Tags, My Favorite Things Fishtail Flags; Copic Markers; May Arts pink twine; Pretty Pink Posh clear and pink sequins
