Birthday Lauren

Hi everyone! I thought I'd make a Birthday Lauren card from Paper Makeup Stamps today because tomorrow is my birthday! So I thought I'd start celebrating now! My best friends, Maria, Tracy and Eileen, took me out to dinner last night and we had a really nice time chatting and drinking some wine. They presented me with some awesome gifts...a new charm for my Pandora bracelet, another silver and black bracelet (I LOVE bracelets!) and a gift card to White House/Black Market! I have some awesome friends, let me tell you!

So, I used a Lauren Meader sketch for this card. It's actually one I've used before in this card, except I used an oval instead of a circle (sorry Lauren!) to accommodate this lovely image. I started with this gorgeous dp from SU called Tea Party. I am just lovin' this dp! I've used it several times! I colored Lauren accordingly and cut and embossed the image using an oval nestie. I mounted it on a piece of Regal Rose that was cut and embossed with an oval scalloped nestie. The top square is Tea Party and the bottom one is from Sweet Always dp (another fav of mine right now!). I colored the pearls with a pink copic marker to get the exact match I wanted (love this about these markers). I used a cool Martha Stewart punch for the sides (don't know the name of it). I love this punch! Lauren was given some "fairly dust" with a Spica clear star glitter pen. It gives the most wonderful **SHIMMER**. Fairies should **SHIMMER**, don't you think? LOL!

Well, thanks for stopping in today. I have lots to do today, so my post was done way early! I'll be dragging tomorrow for sure! Enjoy your weekend!
