Happy birthday Frances!

Today we are celebrating the birthday of a special Paper Pretties' girl - Frances Byrne!  She is our Design Team coordinator and does a fabulous job of keeping us all organized (which I know is a big job!) as well as an amazing designer, so I'm thrilled to join the team in wishing her a fabulous birthday!!  

If you have arrived on the hop from Jennifer Greco's blog than you are right on track!  If not, check out the Paper Pretties blog for the full listing of all the designers joining us today in wishing sweet Frances a great birthday.  You're not going to want to miss one of their amazing cards!

I made my birthday card for Frances using the Paper Pretties' stamp set Wade E. Bug along with some sentiments from the Surprise Sophia stamp set.  I stamped the image on SU's Sahara Sand card stock in Versafine black ink and embossed with detail clear embossing powder and then colored in with Copic markers.  I think it may have turned out a bit darker than I wanted it to, but I enjoyed experimenting with my copics on the colored card stock...

Stamps: Wade E. Bug and Surprise Sophia (Paper Pretties)
