I made this birthday card for a few challenges. Last year one of my resolutions was to join in more challenges and I didn't follow through very well, so although I'm not making a resolution, I'm going to try to do a few challenges this year. The image I used is by Inkadinkadoo. I love this image. It can be used for so many types of cards, birthday, engagement, party invitations, wedding, anniversary, or just a fun girlfriends card. I colored with colored pencils and the "magic colored pencils technique" with oil. I sealed the image with hairspray and cut it out. The papers I used are from my stash-a very old pack and I can't remember the manufacturer. The cardstock is Bazzill. The ribbons are from DGI and Sweet Petites by Morex. The pearls are by Queen and Co. The Happy Birthday stamp is from PSX (and is 20 years old!). I finished it up with a chipboard butterfly from Amanda Blu.
