Happy birthday Sue

Today is my friends birthday (it’s also my niece and my uncles birthday too but this is about Sue’s birthday!).

Every year this coincides with the start of the school term so in the chaos that creates I usually forget to take her card and present with me to school to hand over.  But this year I remembered!!! Whoop! So I can share the card I made nice and early in the day!


I created a background using the Emerald Brusho and love the different colours that are in this one pot of colour.

I then used a Tiddly Inks digital stamp which I coloured with Promarkers as the focal image.  I have been using a lot of digital stamps recently as I printed a whole load off that I had bought ages ago and never got round to using.  Hey are a nice addition to my (already sizeable) rubber stamp collection and are perfect for adding focal points.

I also added a stamped sentiment from the Henry Says set… i love the funky font on this one.

The layers were created by edging the cardstock with Promarkers green and black India ink making it look like there are lots of layers but really there are only two.

So a bit different… but pleased with this effect. Hope Sue likes her oriental funky and modern card.

Happy crafting!
