Happy birthday, Jacqui!

It is my sister Jacqui's birthday tomorrow, and I've already made her one card, but that's for my parents to give to her!  I was stumped for ideas this morning, so I went to my notebook where I keep a list of current challenges in blogland that I hope to find time to participate in.  I chose 2 today - Freshly Made Sketches #113, and Keep It Simple #27 Color Combo.

 I used a Hero Arts Happy Birthday from "Essential Messages", Lawn Fawn "Quinn's ABC" stamps and dies, and the flower and leaves are from a discontinued Stampin' Up set.
The Copics I used are B00, B05, BG10, BG18, R32, RV09 and BV17.  I finished with a touch of clear  Wink of Stella.

Thanks for visiting, have a great day (especially Jacqui!)

  4. Beautiful the blending. What white card stock do you use for your alcohol markers? jeandonny2000 at hotmail dot com

    1. Hi - for this card, I just used a pre-cut card base, which is White Knight 280gsm - it works really well with alcohol markers. The letters are cut from PaperTrey Ink white cardstock, which is also fabulous with alcohol markers.

  5. Perfectly CAS, love how you used the challenge colours. Hugs Bev x

  6. Just beautiful!! Love these big letters with the slight shimmer!!
