Another birthday!

This is the card I made for Marissa's brother, Brad. I love this image and this time am really happy with the way I colored it. I can't believe how much I have progressed in such a short time. I did post a card with this image just a couple of months ago. It was one of the first ones I did. I have covered some of my writing as I had forgotten to take photos (among not keeping track of copics), because I wanted to show you the darling cardstock I found. It came in one of those smaller sized books. I fell in love with the little guy on it. Just too cute. If I get enough requests, I will figure out which book I took it from. I did the background with Tim Holtz's distress inks and foam tool, The culprit that started this whole card making thing! And Jennifer McGuire's series called "thinking inking". It's on She did 3 videos for something like 8 weeks. There was a pdf file available for each program so I made a notebook to refer to.

I didn't like the way one of my buttons looked, so I glued a jewel into the center. I do get tired of twine. I have also used stickles at times. I missed my flowers. Will have to find something to replace all those flowers and ribbons. Guess men don't really care. Hope you like this one. The green cardstock has silver scrolls which fancy it up a bit. Hugs, Barb F

I am impressed with the way this came out. I remember this from before and it sure looks different this time. Your talent is amazing.

I love this card and it is perfect for a little boy. Can you tell me what stamp you used? I have a 2 year old grandson that I would love to make a card like this for. You did a great job all the way around on this card from the cardstock to your choice of colors for the stamped image. I really think we learn a little more with each card we make!
