Ssssshhhhhhh.......mum's the word! LOL I just finished this birthday card using a new little girl image (gasp......don't tell Tilda....LOL) from All That Scraps by CC Designs called Swiss Pixie 'Sweetheart Birgitta'. Isn't she adorable!
I wanted to make a special card for one of my very bestest friends........cuz we've been friends for forever & a day (over 20 years). Her birthday was last week but we're celebrating it on Monday with a day of antique shopping (can't wait) & a yummy lunch on me (oh, not literally on me.....at least I hope I won't be wearing it.......LOL).
I love this Birthday sentiment that I got from Paulette at Create with TLC. You can find this cute Birthday greeting in the "Linear Sentiment" set that also includes Get Well, Celebrate, Thank You, Congratulations & Retirement in her store HERE. Something for every occasion.
I used my wonderful Copics to color Birgitta: E000, E00, E30, E34, E35, E41, E42, E43, R0000, R00, R11, R20, R21, W3. Do her shoes look like they're "suede"? I did this by dabbing them lightly with E41,E42 & E43.
On a side note: I think the hardest part for me is using a "light" touch when I color with my Copics.....as Suzanne Dean so wisely suggests. If you want to learn how to color with your Copics.....sign up for one of her many, many classes HERE. If you've never been to her amazing blog......then run.....don't walk to Scrap Bitz. You'll fall in love with her (she's soooo sweet) & her amazing cards.
The beautiful DP is from a DCWV matstack that I just fell in love with at JoAnn's called The Mariposa. It is gorgeous. The picture really doesn't do it justice.
I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch as well as my EK Success Lattice punch. Prima & Wild Orchid Crafts flowers were used along with my trusty......wouldn't be complete without it.........Stardust Stickles to give her some bling, bling. Cuz don'tcha know......every girl loves some bling. LOL
I completed my card with some beautiful black & rhinestone....uh I mean....diamond strands I found at JoAnn's.
