Just a little something...

I threw together for a friend's birthday. I don't get to see her much but as it's a BIG birthday (40, but I won't tell Kristy!), I couldn't resist making her a special card.

All the papers are from the Simon Says Stamp Kit from March 2014 (no longer available). I colored my Stamping Bella 'Uptown Girl Paisley has a Prezzie' with my Copic markers. I'm realizing it's time to get a wider variety of colors. :) The sentiment is from one of my favorites, Printworks' Small Tag Lines.

I completed the card with a matching envelope. And used sparkly letters just for the occasion. :)

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
