Birthday Card Using Art By Miran "Birthday Betty" for Facebook January Progressive Challenge

Hello friends.  How is everyone doing?  I hope you are having some fun in creating.  I think the weather has been a little crazy all over the world this past few weeks.  

I have been working really hard, trying to create more cards this new year.  I was chosen to be a  part of the Art By Miran Facebook DT; and I am so excited!  This is one of my dreams I have had for several years.  I have always bought and used Art by Miran fabulous digis; but now I will use even more in the coming year.  

This is my first Art by Miran Facebook Progressive Challenge as a DT member. Yay! Isn't she gorgeous!  She was so much fun to color.  This image is Art By Miran Birthday Betty.  If you purchase the first one; color, create something, join the Progressive challenge; then the next month's Art by Miran Progressive Challenge image is free.  If you used last month's image; you need to request the next one from Vannessa.  Check out the instructions on Art by Miran Facebook Group for more details.  This is a private group; so please click button to request to join near the top of the page.  We would love to have you to be part of this fabulous Facebook Group.
