Happy Birthday Sankari!!

I have had the privilege of meeting some of the kindest, warm-hearted and talented paper crafters in the industry, and it just so happens it's the birthday of one such crafter. Sankari Wegman has such a beautiful and unique way of combining colors and textures. Every time I see one of her creations, I can not help but smile. I truly believe it's because of the heart that goes into each one. Well, since it's her birthday, I made a card for her and even included some "pearls" around the sentiment, which Sankari is known to use on occasion. ;) She normally uses liquid pearls, but I used an Ice White Pearl Pen (Viva Decor).

I also used images from one of my absolute favorite designers: Waltzingmouse. Claire has designed spectacular frames for many of the Spellbinders Labels dies which are fabulous for framing her beautifully fonted sentiments. So using the Spellbinders Labels 14 die, I combined the two sets Holiday Labels 14 and Compact Sentiments, with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

If you get a chance, head on over to Sankari's blog, Sankari's Sunshine Corner, and wish her a Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday my sweet friend!!
