Big Birthday

Hi again!  I finished up with all my appointments so I'm popping back in to share a card I made for a couple of challenges I like to do.  I knew I would miss the deadlines if I didn't get it posted today.  It's for Kenny K's Krafty Krew Challenge #102 (big birthday), Oozak Challenge #4 (bright colors), Love to Create Challenge #23 (photo inspiration) and Sketch Saturday #215.

Here is SS-215:

Here is the photo inspiration for LTC-23:

Here is my card for all the challenges:

I started with a card base of SU Basic Black and layered with bright birthday papers from Moxxie's It's Your Day collection.  The fun image is OMG from Kenny K.    I printed her on Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some sparkle with a Letraset Metallic Silver pen, Spica Pens and a bit of Stickles here and there.

Here is a close-up of the image:

For the birthday numbers, I added lots of Turquoise Stickles to numbers from an adhesive alpha set in my stash.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A few turquoise rhinestones from my stash finished my "big birthday" card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll have a few things to share over the next day or two so I hope to see you again soon!
