Paper Pretties Birthday Blog Hop

Today is a very special Paper Pretties birthday - a very Happy Birthday to Nancy Bush - and to celebrate, we are hosting a birthday blog hop. Hopefully you arrived here from Jackie's blog. If not, be sure to start at the beginning at the Paper Pretties blog.
For today's card I used Sophia jumping in the pool in Make a Splash. Yesterday, my daughter went swimming for the first time this season. It's not quite warm enough here, but that doesn't seem to matter to the kids! That's what inspired this card for Nancy. I think this Sophia is so cute and I love to use this image for summer birthday cards. I colored the image with copics and sponged some blue around the edge. I went with the sketch for SFYTT May 2011. I chose purple because of the background papers from Echo Park. I've had them in my stash for a while, waiting for the perfect card.
Here's to Nancy today! Wishing you a very Happy Birthday! Next stop on the hop is Lisa Rasmussen.
Supplies used:
Stamps - Paper Pretties Make a Splash
Paper - Stampin Up cardstock; Echo Park Little Girl dsp
Ink - Memento black, blue; SU Elegant Eggplant
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Nestibilities, grosgrain ribbon
