Hop Hop Hoppy Birthday!!

Good morning to one and all! Hope you all had a lovely wekend and for those of us in the UK...are enjoying the soaring temperatures. It is quite cloudy here today but very muggy.....hopefully the sun will peek through later.

Onto the card..I am using a fab image and sentiment from Pink Gem Designs. I am in need of a little boy's birthday card and when I saw this image I knew it would fit the bill perfectly. I have coloured it with prismas, but used copics for the background. I have 3D the image for some dimension and added white ink pen for highlights.


I have followed the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday and flipped it around to fit the image. The papers are Basic Grey 'Hang 10' collection, which are my 'go to' papers when I need a masculine card. I have embossed a piece of core'dinations cardstock through the big shot and distressed the edges for the main panels.
The tag was a blank 'Hero Arts ' one on which I have stamped, with SU 'Old Olive' ink, lots of stars and mounted the sentiment on top.
The inside is decorated with the same papers and embellishments.


Thanks for looking!
After my demo day at Simply Create a lot of people were asking where they could get hold of prismacolor pencils.....well, I have just found that Crafts U Love are stocking tins of 12 and 48 , as well as stocking paper stumps!! Woo Hoo!! This is great news as they can be pretty hard to find.
Have a fabulous Monday!
