Happy Birthday Stephanie...



Hello again... I have a new creation that I want to share with you and it is for the following challenges:
I decided to make a birthday card for my daughter Stephanie. Her birthday is August 31st and she is expecting a baby around the same date. I used papers from my stash and my image is from Michelle Perkett called Amore Fairy. I colored my image using Adobe Fireworks and added some color box chalks for highlights. This is my first Joy Fold card and it was very easy to make. I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and some of my Nestabilities dies. I added a dragonfly gem, a few pearls and two other gems. My sentiment is inside the card.
