Paper Craftin with Erica

Happy Birthday

This has to be the favorite card (or one of) I’ve made.  This will go to someone very special.  Anyway, I colored this image from C.C. Designs.  I then sponged around the image.  The background paper is from the Candy Floss collection by Wild Rose Studio.  Know what else I did?  I did some faux stitching… my first time!  I used a Pink Copic Multiliner.


I love everything about this card… except, after finishing, I noticed that it’s a little “left side” heavy.  I have flowers AND balloons (which are 3-D) all on the left side.  Oh, well.  Live and learn.

Copics I used include:

  • Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17
  • R81, R83, R85, R20
  • B00, B02, B04
  • BV000
  • E00, E02, E31, E35, E37
  • C4, C8

    I love it, and I don’t think it’s too left sided, life is lop sided sometimes!
