Happy Wednesday!  Wanted to share a birthday card designed for a special friend. I am trying to improve the coloring of my images. What do you think? I seemed to struggle with this card. I knew that I wanted to use this image and verse but could not decide upon the design. Shiny paper shows even a little glue residue!! 

Materials Used:
Digital Image: Bugaboo
Verse: from the internet
Coloring: Copic Markers, I used Liquid Glass to make the grapes shiny
Embossing Folders: Darcie
CS: From my treasured "stash"
Ribbon: Marshall's

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Tuesday Challenges: 
Crafty Sentiments's Design Challenge: Hand colored image
Deep Ocean Challenge Blog: Lots of layers
Inky Chicks Challenge: Happy Birthday
Party Time Tuesday's: Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge: Using fruit or vegetables in the challenge.
Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes

  1. I like your card and the sentiment is so darn true. Nothing is more fun than getting together with a friend or two and having a glass of wine and chatting and laughing about life. This is a great image nad you've colored it great (or should I say you colored it so grape--hahahhaa). Fabulous colors on this, too. Thanks so much for joining us over at Crafty Sentiments for our challenge of "Hand Colored Image". I hope to see more of your artwork in our upcoming challenges, too! Hugs, Gail
