Birthday Greetings from Holley

Hi everyone, this is guest designer Holley from Holley's Blog today. I feel so honored to post a card on Patacake's Pages today during her celebration. Pat's birthday will be in just a couple weeks so this fun card is what I wanted to share today on her blog.
I hope you will leave a comment to be eligible for her blog candy prize and leave her a birthday wish (you can do it today, but her real bday is on the 15th).  If you love this adorable image, it comes from artist Sandra Caldwell. This image is currently retired, but she has brand new images at Sweet Pea Stamps (click here).

From Pat:
Thank you, Holley, whose fabulous designs really inspired me to get better at coloring with my Copics, and think "outside the box" when it comes to card design. 
For today's prize, I am going to ask you to go over to Sweet Pea Stamps and check out Sandra's images and tell me which one you like best. I love coloring up a Sandra Caldwell, and I even have a signed, framed, colored print of one of her beloved characters hanging in my home.
Everyone who comments with their fave image will be in the draw for today's prize! You will have until the last day of the party to do so!
Thank you for stopping by today, and another big thank you to Holley!!

Happy Day 3!

Love the card, Holley! I also like Sandra's images. Right now my favorite is Old Mail Ballerina. I want to put "I want to dance like no one is watching" on the front, then inside, "cause it will actually be better for them if they don't look!"
