Happy Birthday …. to a dear friend

This card I made for a special friend at work. I have known her now for about 13 years and she is an awesome lady so I wanted to make her something special.

I used the sketch from Midnight Madness as my starting point and then created. This card falls into the following challenges:

I used my wonderful Daisy stamp for my image. I feel in love with her a long time ago and is one of my favorite stamps. I don’t use her a lot anymore but it sure was nice to ink her up again.

I followed the sketch at Midnight Madness but altered it a little. Instead of the three metal charms being on the side I added them to the bottom. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 13 for my mat. I then traced around the outside of the label and used it for my blue border.

I colored Daisy with the following Copics:

  • Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20, Roo
  • Pants – BG07, BG05, BG02
  • Grass and leaves – YG07
  • Shirt – YR02, YR00, YR000
  • Belt – E35
  • Hair – Y23, Y21, E35

I used Prima fairytale roses and a MS punch for the leaves.

The charms I purchased at Michael’s some time back and finally pulled them out.

And the inside I used my Cricut By George cartridge for the Birthday sentiment.
