Sassy Studio Designs Dare To Be Sassy Thursday

Not only is it Dare to Be Sassy Thursday at Sassy Studio Designs, it also my birthday! Happy birthday to me. Yes that's right--double nickel. I'm 55 years old today and I am just happy to be alive. There are so many that never made it to this age. I have a wonderful life, I survived breast cancer three years ago, a total knee replacement in November, I have a wonderful husband and a wonderful hobby. What more could I possible ask for! Now back to DTBST.

The challenge this week is "pop it up."

I started w//India Honey and colored her with Copics. The background paper is from DCWV's Taj Mahal stack. I added the "temple" from the Tinkerbell & Friends Cricut cartridge. I stamped the sentiment using the CTMH Word Puzzle stamps. I added some sparkle w/ a glitter pen and bling and colored her forehead jewel w/ a Copic marker as well. The feather is from my stash and I popped her up with a "wobble" that has been in my stash since last year. Hope you like the effect.
