This card won me a Top Three at Creative Colors Challenge!!!

Hi, There!
I have a few birthdays to celebrate in both April and May so I will be looking to make a few celebration cards.  Here is one that I finished tonight and she is called Lizzy with Gift from Make It Crafty.  If you like the big eyes and the flowing hair, they have tons to pick from and I can never make up my mind.  Lizzy was a delight to color and I made her present pop by decoupaging it!  I also popped her frame out from the background too.  Hope you are enjoying the beginning of your weekend!  Just live for the weekends - I do!!!  Take care, till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Card Closeup - I used glossy accents for her eyes and they make them look great, I think!  Used a Spellbinder Label to frame her and chalked around the outside. The pink lace and the beige lace are from LLC.  The white lace is from a friend.  The papers are from Lost & Found and the birdcage charm and ribbon are from LLC.
I used a MS border punch for one of the layers of paper.  And lots of sparkle on the package ribbon!
