Hi all!  I hope your year is going well.  We have a new challenge over at 


  Our challenge is "Celebrating Any Occasion".  I decided I would do another birthday card.  I can't seem to have enough of these.  

Our sponsor for this challenge is 

Art by Miran

She has so many beautiful images.  This one is called "Valentina".  I thought she looked very elegant and just had to have her.  I am going to have to work on doing pleats though.  I just couldn't get it right so I opted for this way to color her.

This paper is from Ken Oliver.  I got to meet him last May and just love his products.  My sister jokes that he is my secret boyfriend.  Hers is Tim Holtz.  Since she made that comment on her last post I just had to make my card with his papers.  I do love them and his Color Burst.  I have so much fun playing with them and designing my own backgrounds.

Please join us in this challenge and pop over to the CWWC challenge blog and check out all the other fabulous creations made to inspire you.
