Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday

To Me!
50 I am!  It's hard to believe!  On the inside I'm still only 30!
When I was making my tissue box cover last week I came across another Saturated Canary image I had "forgotten" (just right for the challenge at Truly Scrumptious this week).  This little darling is Zorana, A Dancing Gypsy and you can find her here at Saturated Canary who want us to use our "Dies and punches".  I am also entering my card into Cute Card Thursday where the theme is "music and dance".

I've used Sizzix papers with DCWV matting.  My image is coloured in Copics - I was a bit intimidated by her hair especially given that I decided she needed to have black hair with blue highlights but I'm quite pleased with it.  The sentiment is SU and I used an SU punch for it, two MS border punches for the central horizontal lacey panels and Nesties for the image itself.  I cut the buttons with a button punch and glazed them.  The swirls and flowers, bow and brad are from my stash and there is a little Craftworks candy and some ribbon too.
Hope to see you soon!  Hugs, Lesley
