Happy, Happy Birthday!

Good Morning!
Today  Sue shares a birthday with my grand daughter! Be sure and pop over and tell Sue Happy Birthday! My gdaughter is 11 today! She has beautiful big eyes like the super cute image! There is a lot of sparkle on this card.... right up Kimmie's alley! The paper has sparkle, the flower has sparkle, and the eyes have glitter on them.... it just doesn't show with the picture!
