My Dad's Birthday Card

My Dad's Birthday was May 6th and here is the card I created for him this year!

I like the way it turned out! Although it's not very "manly" it is cute and I love the colour combinations. I chose paper from the Authentique "Curiosity" Collection. 

Of course I used my favourite medium…..Copic Sketch markers to colour the image. I used Crystal Stickles to add some bling to the balloon, party hat and present. I also used Glossy Accents on the Elephant's toes.

I used distress ink in Peacock on all the edges of the paper to make it pop a bit.

I stamped, coloured and cut out an extra party hat and present to add dimension to the card. My Dad loved the card and now he'll have to wait another year for the next creation from his darling daughter LOL.

I want to wish all the Mom's a Happy Mother's Day today! I made a cute card for my Mom and Mom-in-law but stupid me didn't remember to take a picture of it so I can't show you my card design. Oh well I have a couple more cards I need to make this week so stay tuned for more from me.
Chat at you later,
