Life's too short...

This is a very special day!
It's the day I reveal Margaret's birthday card!
It will go in the mail tomorrow, so before I pack it up with her birthday gifts (which she knows are stamps - just not what ones), I 
thought I would give her a preview since she absolutely
hates to wait!  AND she can't keep a secret (mostly) so I will give in
to her whims.

I used a Stamping Bella image & sentiment (Vienna & her Vespa), colored with Copics and Spicas.  The dp is MME Happy Day and cs is DCWV.  The fabulous button is from Basic Grey (can't remember which collection).  SU! punches were used for the sentiment and ribbon is from stash.  The sketch comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. 

Here is a view of the interior:

and in case you are interested, all the colors I used making this card.
(Margaret likes lots of pictures!)

I am also entering the following challenges:

Lexi's Creations - Happy Birthday
The Ribbon Girls - must use ribbon + button
Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings - sparkle, bling & ribbon
Wags n' Whiskers - girly birthday
Cutie Pie Challenge - lots of layers

Happy Birthday Margaret!
Be on the lookout for you gift package!
{p.s. Margaret's BD is this Saturday, May 11, so please stop by 
and wish her a good one!}

Thanks for stopping by!
