Birthday Wishes


What a wonderful day today is going to be!  I am using the power of positive thinking to light up our sky with beautiful sunshine.  I am not just relying on the fates to provide the sunshine though; I've added lots of bright colours and yellow sunshine in my card today!

I just love this Birthday Tia from Some Odd Girl, she just looks so happy and friendly!  I've paired her up with some papers from Echo Park's Little Boy line.  I think they look perfect with her though, not boyish at all!


I've kept the layout clean and simple, just adding a sentiment from Close to My Heart and some gems from my stash.

Copic Colours:
Skin - E000, 00, 21, 11, 93
Mouth- E93, 95, 97
Hair - E000, 97, 07, 09
Dress - YR12, 14, 18
Hat - R22, 24, 27, 29/ Y15/ YG03/ B37/ BG45/ BG10/ 

Challenges:
The Emerald Faerie Garden - All Things Nice (Girly)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
iCopic - Birthdays
Cute Card Thursday - Going Round in Circles
Do It With Digis - Spots or Stripes or Both + digi (image does not appear to currently be in shop, but was a digi!)
ABC Challenge - Y is for Yesterday (J is for Jewels & gems, Dec. 8, 2010)

Cupcake Craft Challenges - Favorite Cupcake Challenge (#59 - Time For Celebration)

Phew, that was a lot of typing!  6th card in a week, I am on a roll :)  Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful weekend!


                Hugs,
                         Christine

Hi Christine, this is such a lovely festive card!! But I do think you need a lot of positive thinking to light up the sky here in the Netherlands, bah, nothing but rain, rain & more rain. Have a great (but wet) weekend, hugs, Frea
