Happy Sunday and a Birthday Card for CASology #188

I have to admit, I hate the "spring ahead" in Daylight Savings Time. It always messes me up, unlike the fall version. It is a BEAUTIFUL day here and I have to admit I have not enjoyed it at all. I am too tired!!!

I had book club last night. It was fun being with my girls. That is also why I am exhausted. I didn't get home until 1:15 am and so it really was 2:15 am. Not good judgement on my part but when you are having a lot of laughs and you don't see each other often, it is hard to leave. 

Today I am sharing a card I created for my co-worker for her birthday. She turned fifty.

I used Art Impressions "Fire Out" set for this card. I colored her in with Copic markers and accented the image with Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents and a bit of Red Stickles glitter glue. Her skin is not as great as I would have liked but I was in a bit of a hurry. I also need to invest in a few Copic re-fills.  However, I do like how this came out.

I die cut the panel with a PaperTrey Ink "Tipped Tops die" and mounted it over an Island Blue panel that I had embossed using a We R Memory Keepers "Gemstone" embossing folder. All supplies are linked below.

I am entering this into the CASology cue card challenge.

And I am editing this to note that I got an honorable mention for this card over at CASology. So honored!!

That is all for now. I hope you have a great night!!

Great card, love that old granny with the fire extinguisher (not sure I spelt that right but you know what I mean). Always gives me a chuckle.
