Birthday Bash #4


Just a very quick post tonight.  Again I am crafting to the wee hours of the night so lets get this post done and get to bed.

I have made a card for Beccy's Birthday Bash challenge #4 using one of her free digis during Feb.

Sorry about the dark pictures, but its very late at night. I might upload a brighter picture tomorrow morning.
Edit : Ok here is a brighter picture
For the layout of the card I followed a sketch from The Sketchy Challenges for their current challenge.

In the background I also enlarged and printed Beccy's digi straight onto the DP and gave it a hint of colour with my copics.

 The sentiment is hand written on a green patterned DP and punched out using a Stampin Up oval punch.  I used very few embellishments.  Some pink twine and some wooden flower buttons.
So this is my card for the night.  Off to bed I go.
Thanks you for stopping by.
