So I have already sent off my sister’s birthday card but I have been procrastinating on making my Mom’s until last night. It's going to be late but oh well!
I was inspired by the Seize the Birthday challenge where we were asked to use a holiday stamp on a birthday card… and the light bulb went on! I grabbed my "Santa’s Elves" stamp set from My Favorite Things and knew that I’d find one of the elves with a present in his hand… perfect!!
I thoroughly enjoyed colouring in my little elf using the no-line colouring technique and my Copic markers.
I added lots of bling to this one... glitter paper... glitter pens and sequins too!
So I used the current sketch from the MFT Sketch Challenge (#257) and a birthday card was born!
