Stripey birthday

It's a birthday kind of time around my house!!
It seems that there are a lot of birthdays in March for my family and friends..
Which is fine with me of course!! 

I made this cutie for my dear friend Sasha.
We started working at the same place just a few weeks apart,
and through the last 5 years have grown close!
I'm linking this card up with the Stripes challenge over at Dilly Beans.
I've been a bad participant over there for the last month or two, 
but I just adore Megan's digi's, and I'm so glad I could play along this challenge.
For the stripey background I used my Perfect Medium Pen from Ranger,
and some clear embossing powder.  
I then inked over the lines with distress inks. 

Here's a close up of the image. 
It's hard to see in this pick, but I added some rock candy distress stickles to her wings.
It gives it a glimmery sort of distressed look.
I'm also excited to link this pretty card up with the Birthday Bash Tic Tac Toe challenge going on 
over at Designed to color. (I did the line that included Purple, Banner, and presents)
There is still a little time to join in... it's their 1 year anniversary (on the same day as my birthday!)
and they are having 4 days of giveaways and fun!!! 

Also linking up with:
Chocolate, coffee, and cards:  Buttons and Bows
and the sketch challenge at: Sketchy Friday
