Put On Your Party Pants

It's been a few weeks since I posted a card. I have a serious bout with the flu and I am just now getting back in the swing of thing. I had a fever of 105+ for four days. I was delirious and so weak I had to use a walker to finally make it to the doctor's office. I still don't have all of my strength back and have lost my sense of taste and smell. I'm hoping that comes back on it's own. I'm so sick of taking medications that the side effects are worst than the illness! My sarcoidosis has really calmed down and I have I hope that it's in remission!

I've always like this KennyK image but have never used it. When I saw this sentiment at Create w/TLC I knew I'd finally use it. My style dictates that I have the perfect sentimnet to go with an image. My BIL has a birthday coming up and he will really get a kick out of this card. The design paper is from DCWV. I also used a Cuddlebug embossing folder to carry on the star theme. The image was colored with Copic markers. I added a large piece of bling as a "disco ball" along with some glitter glue. The sentiment was cut with Frantic Stamper Inc "Cartoon Speech Bubbles" while the "Musical Score" and "Wine Bottle and Glass" set were used to finish off the party theme!
