Another January Birthday! STB, CAS(E) this Sketch 60, SACC #40

Hello Delightful friends and family!!
Hope you are having a great weekend. We are still experiencing a warm spell in the midst of January!  It's been a bit strange but I most admit the warm sunshine has been very welcome.  We are used to having lots of rain and I just read that the governor has declared the drought a state of emergency.  So please pray for California, we are in such a mess, in much more serious ways than just no rain.

I've made this birthday card for my daughter-in-law Amy whose birthday is coming up at the end of the month.
I'm entering this card in these challenges:
1. Seize the Birthday with the Option to color  (I've used Copic Markers)

  4. Hi Natalie! What a lovely card for your daughter-in-law. So feminine and pink!
    California fires have been in the national news, so I have seen the awful footage. Thank goodness they have a lot of it contained, right? I think I had heard 48% recently. But I may be behind due to babysitting duties!
    Great to be back, and thank you for the visit!
