Happy Birthday, Melissa!

Now then, before you think I am completely vain, let me assure you that the Melissa in question is not me, but actually a co-worker. Would you believe that including me, there are FOUR Melissa's who work in my division (and there aren't THAT many employees!)!!!

The Melissa in question happens to be a good friend of myself and DH, so I had to make her something pretty for her birthday. She is a very exuberant person, so I chose bright, cheerful colors for her card.

I used Partygirlabella for the main image, and colored her in with copic markers. I stamped an extra set of the balloons and popped them up (no pun intended) to make them look like they are actually floating. I went over the balloons with SU Crystal Effects, and I'm pretty happy with how realistic it made them look. Bella needed some bling, (doesn't every girl?) so I added some stickles to her outfit, hat and cupcake.

The sentiment, ribbon, card stock, and designer paper are all SU.
