Happy Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone,

I managed to fit in one more card this long-weekend. I wanted to do something bright and girly, and this one definitely fits into those categories!

 Recipe Card:
Image: 'Ava' from Saturated Canary by Krista Smith (love love LOVE this cutie!) coloured with distress inks
Sentiment: Happy Birthday Wishes by Louise Gray Creations
Paper: 'Tweet' from the 'La Di Da Collection' by KaiserCraft; pink bazzil cardstock
Embellishments: light pink satin ribbon; Glossy Accents by Ranger (used to accent the buttons on her shoes and the balloon); and white pen.

Here is the Sketch:

Have a great week everyone!
