Birthdays don't stop round Christmas just because hallmark and clintons stop selling them. Before I started making the odd card, I used to have to buy the December b'day cards in November and the February ones in January because Valentine's day takes over. No excuse now lol. This one's for my step daughter. Born Old Year's Night.
I've used a Sassy Studio Designs image and the sketchy from Seems A Little Sketchy Challenge Blog.
There's no designer paper used here, just dry embossing. For the top panel, the embossing folder got inked with my SU! whisper white pad and the dark blue cs laid in and run through the big shot, backed with pale blue. The back panel is black/blue cordinations. Again through the BS and then sanded and backed with more pale blue c.s. All mounted on grey blue c.s.
The same grey blue was used as a mat for the image.
Coloured with promarkers with icicle stickles on the fur and glossy accents on the mug, lips and eyes. The image and mat were cut and embossed with a spellbinder die and while the die was in place, a touch of DI brushed on.
The organza ribbon has some beads dangling with the happy birthday sentiment that was stamped onto shrink plastic and heat treated after adding some more DI.
Some "Ice" gems up in the tope left hand corner to finish.
