Birthday Wishes

Good morning. We got a little more snow during the night. Not as much as they thought we would get but still. I have a busy day planned, take the dog for grooming, get the oil changed, gt groceries, then back home and clean, laundry, you know all that fun stuff.
My card today is for challenges. Mo's Challenges , with Lisa Cook (who does amazing work) to use a Mo image and come up with a birthday card. I use the image "You're the Best", and Jennie Harpers sketch challenge over at Stamp TV, Cute Card Thursday any thing new (Crayons). The card stock is some I got last year in a set Once Upon a Time. not sure the company name but it's pretty paper. I colored the image in using Watercolor Crayons. I had forgot I had these until I was reminded reading Linda Payne's blog where she was using hers. Big light bulb went off, "Hey I have some of those". I had never used them but I love how they work. I cut the center part out and punched both sides using Martha Stewart's border punch. the ovals were cut out with nestablities. The sentiment is from Stamping up. I cut it out with a nestie but thought it to big so I trimmed the ends and like the way it turned out. Added 3 gem flowers and used a glitter pen on her hair bows and buttons to finish the card. Thanks for taking time to drop by, I really do appreciate you and all your sweet comments. Y'all stay warm and Happy Stamping!
