Enjoy The Celebration of You

 I hope you have a fabulous birthday.
Today we are having a surprise link up party to celebrate Anne Marie's birthday.  I am excited to be working with her on the current Dynamic Duos Design Team. 
I hear she likes pink and girly things so here is my card for Anne Marie.   

Since Anne Marie lives in Texas, I thought this Adorable Cowgirl digi image from The Paper Shelter was perfect to say "Howdy" and happy birthday.  I printed her on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics and Promarkers.  I cut her out with Spellbinders Classic Ovals and sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edges while still in the die. She is matted with an Early Espresso CS Scalloped Oval and mounted with foam tape.  The DSP is from a page kit by The Paper Studio.  The card base is SU Pretty In Pink CS.  The rope image and sentiment is from MFT's PI-Cowboy and the main sentiment is from MFT's ala mode Big Birthday Wishes, both stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.  I used MFT's Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Flags Layers die-namics to cut out the banners and shaped it with my fingers, added 3 layers of foam tape to the center and then glued the curved parts with Tombow glue.
I hope Anne Marie has a fabulous birthday!
Now head on over to the Dynamic Duos Blog and join the party
