Sketchy Birthday

Most of my friends live in different cities, so one of my resolutions this year is to send them all cards for their birthdays -- actual cards, not just text messages wishing them well.

My dear friend Jessica, who I've known since the sixth grade, has a birthday next week. I used a sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges as the inspiration for her card.

I used Simply Charmed for the cupcake and added gems and glitter glue. The birthday sentiment is ribbon.
I also decorated the inside.
