I have had the immense pleasure of knowing Connie for several years as a wonderful crafting pal and so I am honored to be in this hop to wish her a very heartfelt happy birthday!

Every Girl Has A Wild Side
For this project I decided to use a Scruffy Little Cat Stamp, my new alcohol-ink markers from Prima, some pearl stickles, a Tim Holtz die, SU cardstock, watercolor paper, and some LoveBug Creations Private Reserve Rumple Ribbon for this card.  The girl stamp is the focal point and the die (actually the reverse) became a sort of fence with her in the background.

It started with this - 

and that -

The coloring began -

Well, I could have stopped here, but what would be the fun in that?? I used a glitter pen to accent the elements and some pearl stickles for texture and color.  The next step was to place the Happy Birthday "fence" in front and then add some more bling to the card.

And the finished card is here -

 Up next is Miranda

Here's our line up in case you get lost.
