Sassy Birthday Girl from BUGABOO

Hello!  It's almost Sat. and I wanted to get this posted before my next post is scheduled to go "LIVE" so here I am with a new card using and AWESOME image from BUGABOO STAMPS.  Please remember that BUGABOO is sponsoring a SPECIAL CHALLENGE EVENT over at CDAC from now til Oct. 6.  The cards being made are to benefit Operation Write Home and we're even offering a FREEBIE, so you'll definitely want to check it out.

I made this birthday card specifically for the challenge at CRITTER CHALLENGES which is to use no color - only browns, exception being skin color.  The flowers on the right of the card are really brown even though the picture makes them look slightly orange.  I followed the sketch from FOREVER FRIENDS for this card.
I colored the image with Copics and Atyou Spicas, cut with nesties and rubbed edges with Tim Holtz distress ink - walnut stain.  All DP is DCWV and the base is Bazzill textured from brown monochromatic pack.  Flowers are Petaloo, Prima and SU felt flowers.  Brads are Basic Grey and Bo Bunny.  Sentiment is from Inky Antics.

This card is also for the following challenges:
ALPHABET CHALLENGE - v is for vintage
FAB 'N FUNKY - quote or phrass
CORROSIVE CHALLENGE - unused stash - the felt flowers
A SPOONFUL OF SUGAR - anything goes
PAPERPLAY - only brown and cream
