Celebrate your day

TGIF everybody!
I'm enjoying a couple of days off and I'm debating on whether or not I should go see the new Pirates movie. It looks so good but I am not a fan of opening weekend crowds so we shall see.

Well I've finally got a card done for the first Emerald Faerie challenge and I'm so glad that it's a month long one because otherwise I wouldn't have made it in. For this first time out they have started with an easy anything goes theme and you don't even have to use one of the Emerald Faeries. But I don't know why you wouldn't want to because they are just too darn cute! :)

I've been dieing to color up the Larakins- Ashton & Boo for ages, so I printed them out nice and big so that they would create kind of a border along the side of my card. Then I grabbed one of my new Lime Twist paper pads because the bright and playful patterns really seemed to match the energy of these two scamps quite well. It wasn't long before I knew that this was going to be a birthday card so I didn't hold back with the colors on them either... have I mentioned how much I like coloring multicolor stripes? It's a look I could never pull off in my own wardrobe so whenever I can do it with a stamped image I just go to town, LOL! ;)

Okey dokey, time for me to see what needs to be done around here before I go play... TTFN! :) Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It
paper/star die cut- My Mind's Eye (Lime Twist)
