Maggie's Birthday

Today our oldest Granddaughter celebrates her 10th Birthday with friends and tomorrow the family will gather at our house for a birthday lunch in Maggie's honour.  It seems like it was just yesterday I held her in my arms for the first time and now here she is, a bright, beautiful young girl of whom we are so proud.   I used a Krista Smith's digital called "Poppy" for her card.   As soon as I saw it in Krista's store, I knew I had to have it - you see Maggie has 2 white pet rats.  I know...rats, but I'm told they get a bad rap.  I cannot call them "cute" or even hold them but I've observed they are wonderful pets and actually bond with their owners. 

The tag is a Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die, Antique Frame & Accents that I shortened and rounded the corners.  Sentiment is printed on Word.  Lace is from the $ Store, blue flower is Recollections, Metal strip is from Webster's Pages and the carnation is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Paper is SU.

Copics:  E11, E01, E000, E0000, R20
R85, 83, 81
E50, 51, 53, 33
C1, C0,
T1, 2, 0

I intend to enter into the following challenges:

Prairie Fairy Fridays #77 - Anything goes with flowers
Fab n Funky Challenge #117 - Lace and Pearls
Inky Impressions Challenge - Birthday -  Woo hoo - I won Top 3

Thanks for stopping by and your lovely comments are much appreciated. 
Hugs, Pat
