Anya Treats Birthday Card

Well hello!

Hope you're all having a nice weekend.  It's been quite sometime since my last post, so I'm popping in today to share a card I made for a friend's birthday.  I'll try to keep it short.


I decided to go with summery colors using bright/light yellows, oranges, and some hints of peach.  The card base is a 6x12 piece of DCWV patterned paper.  Perfect for what I was going for.  I picked Anya Treats from TGF for my image, colored her with Copics and instead of fussy cutting her, kept some of the white paper so I could add some loopy doodles around the edge. The flowers are from Recollections that I have had for years, added a doily, some flat-backed pearls and a computer generated sentiment.  Glad to use up some of my older supplies that I think are still so pretty.


I've been using my WOS clear glitter brush pen a lot lately. I love how it gives a nice shimmer to the bright colors, and sometimes, like up top, it photographs nicely.


One down, several more to go.  :)  Hope you all enjoy the rest of your Sunday as Monday will be here way too soon.  Thanks for stopping by!
