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
