Birthday Hugs

It's been awhile, but I'm finally back!  The kids went back to school on Wednesday while I got to catch up on phone calls and paperwork that I put off earlier in the week.  On Thursday I had to take Alicia to get her braces put on.  She is really hurting right now, but hopefully will be feeling much better before she has to go back to school on Tuesday.    

This afternoon I found myself with nothing on the agenda so it was time to head into the craft room and this is what I came up with:
I know I used Ella on the last card I posted, but she is just so cute I had to use her again (and I realized that I used the same papers as last time ~ guess I really do love them).  I made the lace flower and when going through my charms to add behind the button came across some pearls that were from a vintage necklace and they already had a loop on them, so I decided to add that to the chain as well.  I added some stickles to her necklace and parts of her dress and then added some pearls to tie in the dangling one.

I used the sketch from Claudia & Company
I also have another card using this sketch and hope to add that sometime tomorrow.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
