Happiest Birthday Wishes

I made this card for my work friend's birthday, which was yesterday, but I won't see her until the morning to give her the card. This card is for Viva La Verve's January Sketch #3, which I stretched out a bit to fit on a 5 x 7 inch card, for The Ribbon Girl Challenge Anything Goes, for Crafty Sentiments Birthdays Challenge, for My Sheri Crafts Challenge #125 to use a digi stamp and for Sister Act Challenge #41 Anything Goes. I also went with the colours from VLV's inspiration picture too.


And here she is. This digi is by Art by MiRan, which is a new Etsy store that I discovered about Christmas time, when I was looking for some new digis to buy with some Christmas money I had been given. MiRan does the most gorgeous and cute little girls and I bought a few. I will be buying more as well when it's pay day next week as she has tons in her store I want!
