Challenge Me Monday!!

It's another Challenge Me Monday over at FCCB!!! This week's theme is "Birthday Bash" and we were asked to make a project for a kid's birthday. Well, I have to confess....I didn't make this for a was actually for my sister-in-law....and I didn't make it for this week's challenge.....this week got completely away from me, and I have been moving my craft room, and all my stuff is in piles waiting to be organized!!! ahhhh!!! So, alas, I was not able to make something new....BUT this card has never been posted before, so it's new to you all, right? :)

I made this quickie card for my sister in law's birthday a few weeks ago, when we were headed off to the Seacoast Country Music Festival, featuring Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and Jerrod Niemann. It was such a great time, and I thought Jessie would fit perfectly. I didn't add too many details, because Jessie has plenty of detail herself! Here it is!

I'll give you the recipe later, because right now, I need to post this and GET TO WORK!!! I'm running late on this Monday!!

If you have extra time this week, head on over to FCCB and link up YOUR kid's birthday project!! :)
