Birthday Wishes

Evening all.  Not so many posts from me the last couple of days as I have been busy working on other projects I can't quite share yet but watch this space...lol.  I am literally seeing spots in my sleep (all will become clear!)

I had a wee spare hour tonight while Daisy was at Pipe Band so here is what I made...


The image and sentiment stamps are both from Pink Gem Designs .  She is called "Sprinkles with Attitude!  Isn't she great.  She is stamped onto Paper Mill Direct white linen card and coloured with Faber Castell Polychromo Pencils.  (The card looks more ivory in this pic sorry, I was having lighting issues...curse these dark nights!).  The sentiment is punched using the Stampin Up scalloped circle punch.  The papers are DoCrafts Forever Friends Kraft Notes.   The buttons and ribbon are from Sonas Made.  I experimented and coloured the small wooden heart buttons with the polychromo pencils to make them pink...it seems to have worked!




Here are the polychromo colours...
