Have a Fin-tastic Day!

We our going on our very first family vacation next week and I've been working madly trying to get all my previews cards scheduled & ready to go, BUT I took a break really quick to make this for a special friends upcoming birthday.  I've had Shimmer on my "to buy" list forever and she's finally made it to my house and Brooklyn insisted that I use her straight away (mainly so I would stamp it out for her, too).

Using this for these challenges:
Quixotic Challenges - Add shine (lots o'stickles!)
Simon Says Stamp - Paper Piecing (her scarf)
Anyone for Anya - Happy Birthday

Stamp - Shimmer Redkelp & Otto (Sweet November - All That Scraps), Amy R Sentiment (All That Scraps)
Paper - Doodlebug
Embellies - Stickles, gems
