Birthday Love!


Today is my turn to post on the Ai Blog. I decided to share with you a card I made using the Ai People 2014 "Birthday Love" set. I love this set and can't wait to get outside and maybe play some tennis myself! I think this image is versatile as it doesn't just have to be for a Birthday card!

For this card I used paper from the Echo Park "Splendid Sunshine" Collection. The layout is pretty simple with just 2 rectangles, layered and slanted behind the main image. I added a border underneath the rectangles from coordinating paper. This time for this image I decided to paper piece her outfit and visor. I love how paper piecing ties everything together especially if you use matching paper that you used on your card! A bow, some enamel dots and of course my favourite....Wink of Stella and my card is complete!

 I used some of the leftover paper on the inside. The sentiment comes with the set and it's perfect for this image! You could always just stamp the "serving up some" part of the sentiment and add another stamp such as "thanks". That's how versatile this can be! Let your mind soar with possibilities LOL.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20, RV 25
HAIR: Y21, Y26, YR12
Ruffle: RV00, RV11
Shoes: C1, C3, C5
Air: BG0000, BG000, BG01
Ground: C0, C1, C2

Here is another smaller card using the same set. I usually always colour 2 images when I am making a card. One, in case I make a mistake and two, if no mistake then I can build up my stash.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and you get some time to craft!
