Birthday Card and tin

Yep, it's another adorable image from by Lori Designs. This is Annie and she has a balloon and birthday cake. I colored the image with copics, added some Flower Soft to the polka dots and the shoes and then cut it out. I layered the image onto a blue mat cut with my deckled rectangle Nestabilitie die. I inked the edges of the green cardstock and then layered it onto some solid brown. I used three different patterned papers from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Hattie collection. I used a die for the pennants added some twine and finished it off with a few buttons. The tin is perfect for a little extra birthday treat or even a gift card. I put a band of solid brown cardstock around it and then secured it with a velcro dot. I used more of the Hattie collection papers and used a TE die for the balloons. To add some dimension I inked the edges of the balloons with brown ink and adhered with pop dots. More twine to finish it off.
I was not real convinced with the idea of challenges at first, but now I am truly enjoying them. Kind of makes me think out of the box a bit and use colors I may not have thought of using together, and best of all gives me a good reason to spend some time crafting! Doesn't get much better!
Thanks for looking!
