Birthday cards....

....are seriously becoming  favie cards for me to make lately!  They are so FUN!  I never really got into them before.....but now am loving the coloring that I am practicing with my copics and the images I have just seem to spring to LIFE with all the  bright colors that I am into lately.  This is another Whipper Snapper Design image that I have..... actually, I have quite a few of them as they are a Wisconsin based company ;-D  and the background text stamp is a Hero Arts cling that worked perfectly with the mood and "bounce" of this card!  Kind of a goofy color scheme with the red, gold and purple but they were all scraps that I had and they really appealed to me as sort of a funky, happy combo!  When I took my photo the sun wasn't out so I hit the "enhance" button on the computer...I feel like it made the orange look a little INSANE....but, really, it's just plain, old non-neon orange in real life!


Thank you so much for stopping by!

Be well,
Sheila

Super fun! Gosh I just adore these images :) Your coloring is amazing! I looked into that class, but it's closed. Gonna have to see if there will be another one at a later date.
