50th Birthday card

Sssh, I've just made this easel card for my sister!  I'm giving it to her tomorrow, so it's a good job she doesn't read my blog.  I just hope she sees the funny side as she always sends me humerous and unflattering card.

I drew a few ballons and pressies to add the digi stamp (Stella) and put the text in a speech bubble. I then printed off the whole image a few times and coloured with promarkers, flexmarkers and copics, then cut out certain areas and layered up.  To finish off the image I added glossy accents to her specs and a splash of glitter.  To add a pretty touch I cut out some flowers, leaves, a swirl and a butterfly.

I loved making this.

Digistamp: Stella Firemen Calling image/sentiment from Bugaboo Stamps (I changed the sentiment and drew my  own balloons and gifts)
Papers & cardstock: Papermania CS and Fizzymoon
Promarkers & Flexmarkers: Aquamarine, Surf Blue, Sky Blue, Pink Pearl, Wild Orchid, Amethyst, Lilic, Saffon, Caramel, Satin, Canary, Pumpkin, Blue Grey
Copics: E21, E11, E95, E35
Flowers: Swirl (LR0162) - Marrianne
Butterfly:Small Exotic Butterfly die - Cherry Lynn Designs
Swirl: Fanciful Flourish die - Cheery Lynn Designs
Disressed Inks: Tumbled Glass, Dusty Concord
Spellbinder: Labels 4 die
To finish off I added a touch of glitter and some glossy accents

Hope you like it and thanks for visiting.
