CTS 69 - Happy Birthday, Maria!


Today is Maria's birthday and it's a special  one! I don't want to say it's a big one, because I'm getting closer to this milestone myself and it looks younger to me every day! :-)

Shirley is hosting a linky party so everyone who wants to can attend this party!

I used the sketch from this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge for this fun and graphic card.



I used PTI Raspberry Fizz cardstock, a Simon Says Stamp die and a Clearly Besotted sentiment.

Maria - I hope you have a fantastic birthday - I wish you all the very best for today and the year ahead!

News flash... according to one of my wise friends, 50 is the new 30. You can breathe easier now! Thanks so much for joining my party, Ardyth. I love this beauty. Magenta was always my shortest crayon in the box of 64 Crayolas! And talk about perfect placement of your gems! So striking.
