Birthday Girl

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday!  This week is a crazy busy week for me.  Believe it or not, my sweet baby Isaac turns ONE on Friday!  Aaaaaah!  How on Earth did that happen?!?!  Time really does fly and all we can do is enjoy every single second of every single day.  We are planning a little birthday for him on Saturday which should be lots of fun.  I just can't believe my little man is growing up! :)  Anyway, enough chit chat and reminiscing :)  You're here to see a card so here it is :)

Today starts the new challenge over at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this week is anything goes, with a twist, if you like, to go vintage.  I decided to ink up this adorable image, it's called Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Birthday Girl and she is too cute.  I inked her up with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped her onto Copic Xpress Blending Card.  I of course colored her with Copic Markers.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Pinks: RV000, R81, R83, R85
Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Bird: Y35, Y38, E18
Bear: E42, E43, E44, E47

I added the dots to her dress using a white gel pen.  I used Glossy Accents on the balloon and then coated it with Martha Stewart Glitter.  My SP is from the Echo Park Here and Now Paper Pad.  I distressed the edges of all of my papers using my scissors.  The swirls were made using a Memory Box die (Tab will be carrying these in the store soon).  As always, I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score my cards.  I added a cute pom pom ribbon (from Michael's in the dollar bins) and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I always use Scor Tape to adhere my ribbons and flowers.  Here are a few more pictures:

What do you think?  Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by and please make sure to head over to the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog to check out all the other creations from the DT.  Have a great day!
