Crazy September

September is a crazy month for birthdays in my family....last week was my hubby's; this week is my beautiful niece Alyssa's & my sister-in-law Dianne & next week is my brother Terry's. My craftroom has been a busy place lately! For Alyssa's card I decided to use the gorgeous "Ava" from Saturated Canary. I have had this image for ages & have been waiting for just the right occasion to use it. So, here she is:

As always I have colored the image with Prismacolor pencils. The CS is Prism & the beautiful DP is "Airy Fairy" by Kaisercraft. I have used 2 Memory Box dies: Valerian Flourish & Petal Party; the bling is from Recollections & ribbon is from my stash.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
1.  Dream Valley.....Celebrations
