Happy Birthday Jill!!!

Hey Ya'll,
Well, Jill's birthday is officially the 24th of January, but I just had to share this card with you as she already got it.  She wanted a Nook for her Birthday and has a vacation coming up, so I wanted her to be able to start playing with it before her vacation.  Since she got it early, I thought I would go ahead and post it.
 There is a lot of special things going on with this card.  Jill has a thing for Raggedy Ann and Andy, so I couldn't resist this adorable print I found on Google.  I used CTMH Art Philosophy for the Stamp Shape.  The calendar is from the Estate Collection by 3 Birds on HSN.  I didn't need to show the whole calendar, I just wanted to show the month and the date, so I circled it with a little marker.  All of the other shapes are from CTMH Art Philosophy.  The striped ribbon is some special ribbon I have been saving that Gaby sent me from Gaby Creates.
 I added a doily and stamp (from the Estate Collection) and used some glitter and glossy accents here and there for finish it off.  Lots of layers and lots of love in this card.
I used a Happy Birthday stamp from the CTMH Art Philosophy Collection on the inside.  I was just so excited with the way this card turned out and Jill really loved it as well.

I would love to hear your comments.  Thanks so much for sharing time with us today!
