It's a Party!

In anticipation of his Blogoversary, Dustin Pike set the theme It's a Party for the challenge this week at Doodle Dragon Studios.  My card started as a congratulations card, until I reread the challenge information and realized it was supposed to be a birthday card!  A quick sentiment change and here is my new and improved birthday card.


I colored the image using colored pencils blended with baby oil.  I am still learning the process, but I really like the look it gives to the image.  The mat behind the image was created using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Tuscan Sun, Patina, and Latte.

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
Martha Stewart Scallop Dots border punch
Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder
Stampin' Up Four Square (sentiment)
My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Mabel paper stack
