RCC89 - Happy Birthday

****For the On the Corner Blog Hop scroll down

Hey everyone!  Here to share my card for this month's Ribbon Carousel challenge.  There's a little bit of everything here.  Make a love card, a birthday card or a get well card.  I chose birthday and inked up a new set I recently got from My Favorite Things.  Isn't she cute?

A very simple card.  I really wanted to work on my coloring.  I was a little bit nervous about the hair when I bought this set, but she is just so sweet, I persuaded myself to go for it.  She is colored with a combination of Spectrum Noir markers and Copics (the reds are Copics and the rest were Spectrum Noir).

The sentiment is actually a single line, but I did a little masking to to make it a two liner.  I added some fun pom pom trim to the bottom as well as some sequins to break up the white space on the card.

So make sure to play along, you have plenty of time, and a random participant will win a set of spools with the winner's choice of seam binding, baker's twine or May Arts ribbon.  

Thanks for coming by, hope you are having a great day!
