Happy Birthday ...

You know sometimes when you do something and when you're done, you think, "Oh my gosh, I (bold here!!) did that??" Well this is one of those moments for me. I sorted all my cards and I wanted to make some special birthday cards, so out came my copics and I went through one of my magazines and found a pattern to go by .. and I created this ..  

I always struggle with my copics, I just can't seem to get the knack of them. Well, I think it's just ppl I can't do bc this turned out so pretty. I added some chalk around my image to give it a little glittery shine and dug out some punches that have been neglected too long. "Happy Birthday" is stamped on a canvas shape (love these!!). My sentiment is from a new CTMH Stamp set called "Scrapbook Statements - Poets .. Everyday Life"

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel .. Maya Angelou"

Is that not fitting for a birthday card?

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Karen this is just beautiful! And I so understand that AHAAA moment when it comes to Copics. They are a learning curve aren't they?

Karen Wilson said...

Elizabeth, they certainly are! I seem to be able to use them better with flowers or bigger spaces. People - yikes!!!!!!!!!
