moving away from Christmas cards...

hi there! I've got a birthday card to share today, it was a bit of a relief to make a card that has nothing to do with Christmas :)

I was itching to do some copic coloring the last few days so I knew I wanted to pick a coloring-intensive image for today. I die cut the stitched frame out of Neenah cardstock and then stamped the little Stamping Bella stamp in My Favorite Things Black Hybrid ink and the sentiment in Hero Arts black ink. I colored the image with my Copics and then stamped the hearts under the sentiment (and darnit all, one of them came out crooked. so annoying.) I cut a piece of Hawaiian Shores cardstock down to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and stamped the background basics: text style stamp on the right side (man I wish Papertrey Ink would re-release the text style stamps long enough to stamp all the way across card on the 5 1/2" side!). I mounted the teal panel on an orange card base and then adhered the stamped and colored die cut on top of that. I'm mailing this card so I decided it was done and didn't need any bulky ribbons or anything to slow it down on it's journey :)

I had a very fun birthday Saturday, it wasn't very birthday-ish, but I got to spend it with my extended family which includes most of my favorite people ever, so that made it fun. and yesterday we had our last Christmas of the season so now I get to figure out where on earth I'm going to keep all of Bree's toys (we have a very tiny house and way too many generous gift givers!)

Anyways, have a fantastic day!
