29 again?

Hi there crafty friends, and happy Mardi Gras to you!
Someday I hope to experience that in New Orleans.
Yep, it's a bucket list item! LOL!

Speaking of fun and festive, I've got a birthday card to share:

Here's the inside:

I love that sentiment paired with this sassy lady! LOL!
She's colored with Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut and popped up on
foam squares over the inky background. That panel was made
by spritzing a couple colors of Dylusions ink sprays. I then covered it with
a stencil and wiped away some of the ink with a baby wipe to get
that ghost image. It's a fun technique!

That's all for now. Time to walk the fur baby.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
