Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! OMGoodness, can you believe we are on the down-slide to the end of April already?! I keep saying it's gonna be Christmas before we know it, and it will be! I'm super stoked to share with you today my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #76 - Anything Goes! Our sponsors this time are yours truly (me), The Paper Shelter and A Creative Need! Come play with us - we know you love the 'anything goes' theme!

I chose the absolutely gorgeous Orchids digital image from A Creative Need for my birthday card created in shades of purple. And of course I added my signature big bow and used my favorite stitched dies. I just can't get enough of them! ;)

I colored this image with my new Zig Clean Color markers. I really like them and I'd like to think my technique is improving each time I use them. I did say I wanted to watercolor with them the next time I used them but I haven't. Maybe next time! ;)

The front and inside sentiments are from the GKD Happy Birthday To You stamp set, stamped in Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink. This ink looks embossed in real life. So pretty!
