Happy Birthday to You....

Oh what a change in the weather today...nice and Sunny....I have spent a few hours on this card trying to get the shading right. The papers are from Crate Paper - Brook Collection. I coloured this Sweet Pea image with copics using 12 different shades of green and 6 different browns...not sure if you can see the shading in the photo but believe took me ages!! I distressed the edges of the circle and also inked the edges of the image with brown and green ink aswell then added some glitter, pearls and gems. I have entered the following the challenges:

Bunny Zoe - sketch(not sure if I have to used a stamp sold in the store)

Stamp & Create - Pearls & Gems

Crafty Catz
- brown & green

Totally Papercrafts
- birthday

Copic Creations - shading

For Fun Challenges - glitter

ABC Challenge - distress
