Happy Birthday, Little Sister!

You can click on any image for a close-up.

Today is my kid sister's birthday, so I wanted to make something sweet, yet funny. She never fails to remind me that I'm the older sister. (Keep in mind, this is the sister that had a heart attack last September. Smoking cigarettes is very bad for your health, dontcha know.) I hope she liked it. I can get my little digs in, too, heh heh!

This adorable Sugar Nellie image is called Daisy (Sugar Nellie stamps are available from Funky Kits). I can think of so many uses for this stamp! She was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers.

The image was cut/embossed with the Nestabilities Labels One die. I used the next larger size to cut the brown mat, and the panel for inside the card. Don't you just love that inside sentiment? LOL That one comes from Hambo Stamp
s Fractured Funnies (where I also got a great one for Mother's Day, hehe!).

Copic colors used>>>>

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla and Cameo Coral, The Paper Company Weave Ivory, The Paper Company Textured Brown
