For my Special Birthday card I have made a card for my friend to give to her Mum for her 70th Birthday. I have used a Paper Shelter image called Regina.
I used papers from Bo Bunny Collection called A gift of life and die cut some feathers from the papers to tie all the colours and patterns together. I used a Lawn Fawn cloud edge die which I used on the black card and also the white pearl base card. The letters and numbers are thickers from American Crafts and I used a few co-ordinating enamel dots along with some silver pen to add details and make it extra special!
I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour Regina -
Skin - Antique white, Blush, Soft peach, Coral & Spice.
Hair, Boots & Cain - Warm Greys.
Skirt - Oasis, Turquoise & Marine
Jacket & Hat - Wild Orchid, Purple Velvet & Plum
Feathers & lining - Lime Zest, Lime Green & Pear Green.
Finally I edged it all with Soft lime.
Ok - now its time for you to hop on over to Lena's Blog. But remember to leave a comment below before you jump away for your chance to win the digi's.
I really hope you are enjoying this Birthday celebration with me and the rest of the DT!
Good Luck, Liz (:(|)x
