Happy Birthday to you

Happy Birthday to you...
Happy Birthday to Emily...
Happy Birthday to you...


Be thankful I'm only typing and not singing...eeeeks! I sing worse than I draw! LOL! This is the card I made for Emily's Birthday blog hop. AND....this is my first hop! Shocking, I know. I would love to play more but my schedule just doesn't permit it.

If you just happened to pop in here, you might want to start at Emily's blog because she got to be first since it is HER birthday afterall! And if you hopping along you can go to the uber talented Julie Masse's blog next.

For those of you who are still with me and haven't hopped off yet you are lucky enough to get the nitty gritty! I used presentahbella, stamped her up in Brilliance Graphite black and colored her up in these copic inks:
Y000, 00, 11, 13, 15
YG13, 25, 17
RV00, 10, 02, 32, 25, 29
E000, 00, 11, 30
E33, 35, 37, 59
C0 and blender

The polkadot paper is Scenic Route that I've had it in my stash for a while and I thought the tiny polkadots were too perfect to pass up. The paper was also my inspiration for the copic colors used. The sentiment is appropriately called Wish Big and I shaded it with a bit of yellow pencil. The final touch is one of my kajinker felt flowers that I have had for so long but never had a perfect place for it until now! You might also notice that there is no glitter on this card...YIKES...but I did add a few layers of clear glaze pen on the dots on her dress just to give it some texture.

Now that I'm done blabbering...go off to the next post and Emily, if you are reading this...I WISH YOU A WONDERFUL DAY!

I left this comment on the wrong card...
Beautiful colouring! I guess life would be boring if we could all colour as beautiful as you. I like that flower and leaves, they almost look like clay until you look closer. Or am I getting old, lol!

Martha said...

Your cards are always top-notch, and this piggy-tailed Bella card is no exception:) The flowers are the perfect touch. Hope your cute doggie's knee is feeling better now.
