Birthday Card

This week at Through The Purple Haze Challenge Blog, we needed to create an item 'For The Girls'. I chose to create a Birthday card using a Simply Betty Stamps Digi.
The image is coloured with Copics and then sparkle has been added using orange and light green Spica pens.
I cut the image out using a Spellbinder's label die- carefully cutting around the top of the image so that I could use the die and have part of my image outside of the die shape. Lime Tart has a great tutorial on how to do this.I used the larger die to cut out out a second label out of black cardstock.
For the background, I pulled out an Ancient Basic Grey paper from a 6x6 pad "Gypsy" from my stash. The colours were pastel versions of those I used to colour the image. I then cut some Superstar borders from orange cardstock using a Poppy Stamps Die. These were brushed with Wild Honey Distress Ink before fixing onto the background paper. To cover the join I used some Webster's Trim from 'Let's Celebrate'.
