Happy Birthday card!!


It's Tuesday and I have another card to post. This week finds me waiting on the Fed Ex truck several days in a row. I ordered the Sizzix Big Shot Pro and am waiting on all of the adapter plates to come in so I can use it.  I tried one of the dies I received last week, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals, in it and I love the way the Grunge paper cut. However, I did not know I needed all of the adapters to use it for embossing and using thinner dies so I am waiting on these to come in so I can play. Hopefully all of them will be here by Friday.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
Kenny K's Krafty Girlz - Pocket card
Wild Orchid Crafts - Birthday card
CMC Copic Challenge Group - Red, aqua, white/cream

This is a Kenny K digital image "Bathing Beauty", she is on Cryogen cardstock and colored with Copics. I can't find my list of colors but I know I used on the skin E000, E00, E21; hair E25, Y23, YR23; can't remember on the clothes. The papers are all from my stash and several years old. The large rose and the rose leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used my Nestabilites but don't know which one.

This is a picture showing the pocket with the gift card in it. I cut the gift card holder to fit behind the pop-dotted Nestability.

I hope everyone has a great week. Mine is looking pretty good right now and will be better if all of my adapter plates come in.


p.s. I just looked at the preview and my colors don't look very much like aqua and red but they really are.
