Sketch Saturday Happy Birthday

Here is a card I've made this week for an upcoming birthday. It was done using this weeks sketch on the Sketch Saturday blog. The main image is Wiffs of Joys "Willow with hot chocolate" stamp coloured in with ProMarkers. The papers used are from the Infuse collection and are Extract, Invest and Salt. The Fancy Pants chipboard pieces were painted with Ranger Acrylic Dabbers and Tim Holtz Distress ink "Peeled Paint". The sentiment stamps was from the Papermania Sweet Nothings set and was stamped with Distress Ink and coloured in with a marker. The card was finished off with ribbon (although you cropped in the photo).

CPS 140 Birthday Card

RIMG5444, originally uploaded by Bio-hazar.

It seem I've not made very many birthday cards this year, but as it's a special friends birthday this month, I just had to sit down and make one. I made this one based on the CPS sketch #140. I used Whiff of Joy "Willow with hot chocolate" stamp and coloured it in with Promarkers. I'm just loving using my Promarkers these days and seem to spend more time colouring in images than making them into anything.The papers are Basic Grey Wisteria Cornflower and the brads are also from the BG Wisteria range. The backing card stock is Bazzil Swiss Dots. I inked the edges of the scallop and the paper with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord Distress Ink to finish it off.
