Have a fairy nice birthday, Katie!

Hello my beautiful bloggers! Did you know that today is Katie Cotton's birthday? Who is this lady you ask? Why she is the FANTABULOUS owner and creator of the company Paper Makeup Stamps , our PMS Design Team Leader and my dear friend! Today my fellow Paper Makeup Stamps Makeup Artists and I are taking the time to honor Katie and help her celebrate this fabulous day!

If you just arrived at my blog, then I wholeheartedly welcome you...and encourage you to go back to the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog and start our delightful little Birthday Blog Hop! If you have been hopping already, then you should have arrived here from the Delightful Dawn B's blog where I'm sure she showed you something BEE-autiful as usual.

I wanted to do something special and new for Katie's birthday card, so I decided to do an easel card!

I used the gorgeous PMS Beautiful Day Fairy Kirsten to be the main focus of my card. I paper pieced her clothes to match the colors of the card and then just added her to some layers. And added bling to her wings and dandelion of course! The base of the card has the adoreable sentiment "Have a Fairy Happy Birthday" which is part of the Birthday Cheer set by PMS. I used a beautiful filigree brad to hold my picture in place.
