Birthday News!


I love this Stampendous image and make cards with it often. Today I made a birthday card that was quick, easy, and simple. I colored the image with Copics, adding glossy accents to the glasses, and cut the image panel with a square stitched die. I matted it with black, and added a SNSS birthday sentiment on a Melon Mambo card base that was cut with a stitched rectangle die. That's all there was to it - the amusing image does it all for me :)


Thanks for stopping by and here's to a great weekend!
