Object of Jealousy

Birthday Babe

I wasn't gonna post this...but the more I thought about it I was like....OH...what the heck...GO FOR IT! My daughter might have a moment of embarrassment...but only for a moment. She has "THE" sense of humor ;) Here goes.....

I made this card for my oldest daughter's birthday using Sketch Challenge 192 over on Splitcoaststampers. (I still haven't given it too her yet!)



It's totally her! I laugh every time I look at it. Naturally there's a story behind it. About a year or so ago, we went to a big department store to try on expensive jeans. You know...the kind celebs wear. Of course I brought my camera and took pics. One of the pics she was posing pretty much like this stamp!



We had a blast. And yes...we looked good in those jeans! LOL Happy Birthday Alisha!

The stamps are from MissyB Designs. Speaking of Missy B -- Melissa just put together a Design Team and asked me to be on it!!! How COOL IS THAT!! I listed the other DT members on my side bar. We are gonna have FUN! YEAH BABY! LOL :)

I colored with Copic Markers and then painted Shimmerz on top of the skirt, blouse, boots and on the brown oval layer under sentiment. Pink & Clear Rhinstones galore!! Main image popped up on dimensionals.
