Happy Birthday to ...

... my DT Buddie at La-La Land Crafts.

Today is Maureens Birthday so we've got together a few cards to surprise her, cool eh?

I hope Maureen likes the card I have made to celebrate her Birthday, I'm not usually a Purple kinda girl, but when I started on the card, this is where it took me! Strange eh?

I've used Sitting Lala from La-La Land Crafts and I have hand drawn a chocolate chip cupcake for her to sit on, I drew it in pencil first then carefully went over it with my Copic Multi Liner so that when I coloured it in, the Ciao's wouldn't smudge! I was really nervous at first because I didn't know how it was going to turn out, but I'm pleased with it!

I've used papers from Bearly Mine Designs - Designer Extreme Vol III and loved the butterfly paper so much, I didn't want to finish the sketch from Create4Fun as it meant I had to cover it up :o( But you can see some of the butterflies - even if it is just a wing hehe. I cuttlebuged the middle paper with Allegro and then sanded over it to give the white areas.

The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I coloured the larger ones in with my Ciao Pen as they are cream, the little roses were already tinted with a lovely purple hue.

Thanks for popping by and please head on over and wish Maureen a Happy Birthday -
You'd really make her day!!
