Sisterly Birthday Love

My best friend from childhood will be celebrating her 40th birthday on Friday. When I saw this image I knew it would be PERFECT for her, since we share a common faith and love for life. I don't believe in those teasing 40th cards (mostly because it will be me in a few months) and know she'll get a chuckle of these gals.

Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch #36
I rotated the sketch for my card.

Color Inspiration
Pinks and browns are one of my favorite combos. I thought they worked well with this digi image.

This is one of my new Mo Manning digital images - love it!
Nuns are girls - right? Looks like this group is having a GREAT night out!

My Creation

Image Detail
I sprizted vanilla smooch over the entire card for some extra shimmer.

  5. Oh Cat, I don't know about you, but I was raised Catholic and none of the Nuns in my school were so happy and playful...I only wish!!! lol I always dreamed Sally Fields was my teacher from the "Flying Nun". What a lighthearted image. I am sure your friend will be delighted receiving this. Welcome to the fabulous 40's-it's a time in a woman's life where she comes into her own. It is a wondrous journey filled with adventure and awakening! Thank you for finding time to play along with us at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. We welcome you to join as again soon as it is always a treat to come and view your work.
