Happy Birthday Emily


Emily , hope you have the best Birthday ever!!!!

In honour of Emily's Birthday, Shannan organized a Blog Hop that starts with Emily's Blog. Please join in the fun and hop on over to Shannan's Blog, and check out her amazing card.

For my card, I stamped Amplee'tude and coloured her with Lyra pencils and mineral spirits. I used Bella paper which I think is the best card stock for both mineral spirits and copic markers. I used chalk around the image to give her some depth, and, white pen on the ice cream and shoes to give it some highlight. I drew a black line to ground her. I also embossed the circle and used a border scallop punch on the pink card stock.

This is the first time I didn't use any glitter at all, shocking. LOL

I love pink, green and brown colour combo and hope that you do also.

I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment. Don't forget to hop on over to Shannan's blog. Enjoy.

Hugs

Nicky
