Kraftin Kimmie Challenge - Anything Goes!

Well hello everyone!

It is a horrible day here in Toronto!! The weather is super gross, all cloudy and rainy, which in turn has completely messed my hair. Not to even mention the horrible storm last night. Holy Moley is all I got to say. The rain came down in buckets and the thunder and lightening rattled the house. Oh well, at least it isn't snowing.


So in honor of this day I thought lots of colour and a birthday theme would be great for Kraftin Kimmie's newest challenge. This week is hosted by Jenny and her challenge was Anything Goes! How awesome is that!!!

For this card I chose one of the three images in Birthday Buddies. This stamp set was released last July and I just love it. It is so great to make birthday cards with. The images are just super cute!!

I just love this little girl stuffing her face with cake. Don't we all wish we were that young so that we could do it and not worry about the calories. LOL.

For this card I used some old paper I found in my stash and a kraft paper base. For dimension i used some burlap. I am loving the burlap right now, it is so fun to play with on cards and just adds something, at least that's what I think. I also used some pink and green twine and some jewels. I also outlined some of the leaves ( i guess that's what they are) with stickles. Once the balloons were coloured I used some glossy accents on them to make them pop.

 
I coloured the image with the following copic markers:

Skin: E00, E11 
Eyes: B00 
Background: YR20, YR21 
Hat: RV13, RV66 
Bib: RV13 
Dress: RV63, RV66 
Cake: YG11, YR16, E30, E23 
Balloons: YG23, RV66, RV13 
Hair: YR12, E49, E57, E59 
Table: C1, C3 
Chair: E35, E37, E34 

Happy Friday Everyone!!!
