Sparkly Birthday Card!!

Hey everyone, happy Sunday to you all!! I hope your day is off to a relaxing start! For today's post, I have a birthday card I created for the latest challenge over at the Glitter N' Sparkle challenge blog!

                                                              -Di's Digi Designs  

                                                   Here's the pic for you to check out:


The card measures 4 3/8" x 6 3/4" using a sheet of white card stock as the base.
For the image I used this beautiful digi, "Stardust Fantasy Fairy 1," from Morgan's Art World.
I used my alcohol markers to color her in. Here's a rundown of the colors I used:
                                                            -Skin- FS9, Beige, R20
                                                            -Hair- E70, E29, E79
                      -Dress & Wings- V20, V22, RV63, RV55, G40, G43, Y13, Y18, RV000
 I added sparkle to her dress and wings using my Wink of Stella glitter pen.

 Then I inked the background using some Stampin' Up ink pads in "Bashful Blue", "Bliss Blue" and "Mauve Mist".
Next, I colored the ground beneath her feet using my G94 & G99 Copic markers.
I used an oval stencil to trace the shape around the image and fussy cut it out.
I then took that same stencil and traced it on to a sheet of white card stock that I trimmed down to 4 1/8" x 6 1/2".
I used my Xacto blade to cut the oval out and ran it through my Cuttlebug using a Darice "Butterfly" embossing folder.

Next, I lined up the frame and image on my card base and marked out the placement with a pencil.
I then adhered the image directly to the base and used pop dots to attach the frame on top.

To finish the card off , I added the "Birthday Wishes" sentiment from Avery Elle along the bottom and added a few sequins.

                                                         And ta-da!! Card complete!!


                                                  I hope you enjoyed this card for today!!
                                   Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Sunday!! :)
