Stella - Birthday

 I needed a birthday card for my stamping buddy  and knew it had to be a  Bugaboo digital stamp. This friend loves Stella, Gus and well the whole bugaboo crew:0) Bugaboo has a sketch challenge going on  so I decided to use it too. My only problem is my card got a little too big and I have run out of time to do any changes ( it is 5 1/2 x 6 1/2) - whatever was I thinking).I usually do not go over 5X5  as they  do not then require special shipping  prices.  I think anything over 5 1/2 is non standard.  Anyhow I hope she enjoys it and as she lives down the road so to speak, it does not need to be mailed!

Stamps used: All from Bugaboo - Stella life of the Party, Stella Still Hot,  SShappy Birthday
Colour medium: Prismalcolors Markers
Flourishes: Whimsy vines
Die cut border punch - Martha Stewart
Crystal Effects
