Sherrie's Birthday


Sherrie's having a birthday!

My sister-in-law is having a birthday today!  She and my brother have been kind enough to let my daughter and I live with them while I await word on my social security benefits.  I have not been able to work due to a back problem for quite some time.  I've been living with them for just over a year now.  

Her kids told me her favorite colors are pink and green, so I thought I would make those the colors for the card.  Sherrie does not like chocolate so I made sure to make her a yellow cake.  

This gorgeous image comes from Sassy Studio Designs.  I colored her with Whisper Strokes, Stampin' Up and Copic Markers.  The ribbon was some I won at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The designer paper is from Create with TLC. The other papers are The Paper Co. and Bazzill.  

These are the challenges I am entering:

Corrosive #155 - They say it's your birthday
The Paper Girls #13 - Birthday's 
Digi Stamps 4 Joy #48 - Portrait of a woman
4 Crafty Chicks - Circles, circles and more circles
My Heart Pieces Digital Stamps - Use your fave color (green)
Paper Crafting Journey - Happy Birthday/Celebrations
Papelitos Stamps #7 - Celebrations
Frosted Designs - Circles
Wags 'n Whiskers #86 - Favorite color combo (green & yellow)
Sassy Cheryl's #128 - Favorite color combo (green & yellow)

Thanks so much for visiting!
