This is another card that I have made for someone very special. She is a wonderful, wonderful friend, and I know that if we lived in the same city/country, we would spend a LOT of time together! I don't want to say too much as I know she stops by my blog, and I want it to be a surprise when she eventually receives this! :)

So for this card I inked up the *new* Kenny K Happy Hour rubber stamp and coloured her in Copics (yes, colouring around the white spots on her dress was a challenge, lol). The sentiment is from the *new* Whimsy Stamps Simple Everyday Greetings stamp set (I can't tell you how much I love this set and I just know that it will become my most used everyday stamp set!).

Great coloring - specially her hair and dress - you created such volume with the pleats of her skirt! I like the pearl accents at the top of the scallops as well. Lovely card.
