I have been in such a mood to create birthday cards lately so this project was right on time. So when I saw that the challenge for Practical Scrappers was birthdays I was in heaven! This card is also going to be the start of my "birthday card" series.
So let me show you my card and then I'll tell you what I did.
First I started with an image. So I chose a Birthday Party image from Melonheadz Illustrating (I love her images) and I colored her up using Copic Markers. I had crystal glitter glue and gave her sparkly shoes, hat, and dress.
I also used the Deconstructing Jen sketch #125 but instead of using the sketch as a portrait sketch I turned it on it's side and used it as a landscape. I am really pleased with how the card came out.
I added some gray flat back pearls to the card just to give it that extra Umpf and then I embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment and that was all she made. Just as a suggestion you may wanna go over to the Practical Scrappers blog and check out he other fantastic cards cards the DT created. You can never have enough birthday cards.
So this is the first Happy Birthday card. I am not sure how many will be in this series but I'm having fun in the process.
Thank you all so much for stopping by and I will see you next time.
