Johnny says "Happy Birthday Sankari!"

Yesterday one of my favorite people in all of Stampland, Sankari, celebrated a birthday! As many of you know, she's the cohostess of my favorite challenge blog, Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge! Yesterday her best blogging buddy, Brooke, had the fabby idea of posting cards for Sankari. Well I'm a day late, but I hope this will still make Sankari smile! Of course I had to make her a Johnny Depp card, since I understand all too well Sankari's love of this brilliant actor!

For those of you who don't know Sankari - I photoshopped her face in there. hee hee!!! Hopefully she'll think that's funny and not creepy. :-) I grabbed a photo from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to use, because that also happens to be this week's Cinema Saturday challenge!

Of course Sankari would pick a Johnny Depp movie on her birthday weekend! YAY! This is actually one of my fave JD movies, he's so cute & funny in it. The rule for this week was to add a Halloween tree, so I just cut one out of cardstock. I also decided to add little paint dots all over the card, since that's one of Sankari's favorite things to do. Yikes! Turns out I should leave that to the professional! Now I am even more in awe of how perfect Sankari's always look - and that she doesn't smudge them!! I guess I'm way too impatient to wait for paint to dry...! I used my good old snap stamps to spell out Johnny's birthday wish to his 2nd favorite fan (me being his favorite, of course!). ;-)

So... A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU SANKARI!! I hope you like your card. :-)
