Sentimental Sundays#105 - Happy Birthday 2 U

Happy Sunday. It's time for another Sentimental Sundays challenge. This week's sponsor is Doodle Pantry.

 The challenge this week is "Show us your spots," with a bonus sketch challenge as well.

Be sure to stop by Sentimental Sundays to see what the rest of the DT has created.

This week I used an image from Tickled Pink Stamps. I love the Lil Pinkettes and this week chose Lil Birthday Pinkette Faith. I colored her with Copics because of the detail in the image. With the brush tip of the Copics, I was able to color in all of Faith's details. I used a Spellbinder Nestabilities circle and die to cut, emboss and stencil to additionally accentuate the image.

Keeping with the "Show us your spots" theme, I chose DP from my stash with a colorway that reminded me of summer. All papers are from Recollections from Michaels. I used foam dots to add dimension. The number "2" was also popped up with faux stitching added with a white Gelly Roll pen. The "U" is from a package of wooden embellishments from Hobby Lobby. I feel a card is almost never complete with out some kind of bling so of course I added swirl bling.
