TIME OUT #47 - Birthday

It has been a LONG time since my last post - we were traveling over the holidays and then I came down with a bad flu when we got back - but I am back again this week with another challenge for Time Out. Our challenge this week is BIRTHDAYs with an optional twist of sponging and we have a fabulous sponsor in Uniko who have very generously offered up a prize to one of the entrants who incorporates the optional twist:


As usual, we also have an amazing guest designer joining us - and this week, it is Rema from Paper Panache. Rema always comes up with such great ideas so please stop by her blog.

So on to my card... this is a Birthday card for one of my best friends - who loves Boston terriers. I "modified" a Simon stamp to make it look like her new puppy and then added in an MFT present and some Paper Smooches balloons before colouring everything with Copics. I did some masking and then sponged on some Tumbled Glass behind the image. A strip of glitter tape, a skinny strip of patterned paper, and a CB greeting were the finishing touches before I popped the panel up with foam onto the card base.

 Thanks so much for stopping by!
