HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EARL!

A new challenge just started today at Doodle Dragon Studios and will run through October 16th.  It's the Macho, Macho Man challengeTo play along, you just need to use a DDS image and make the card masculine...no flowers, no bling.  Hmmm...I wonder how they feel about Sparkly Fluff and Distress Stickles.  Ha!

This challenge couldn't have come at a better time since my hubby's step-dad just celebrated his 88th birthday!  He's finally home from the hospital / nursing home after about 3-4 weeks.  He had emergency surgery and when he was well enough, he was transferred to the nursing home so he could go through daily physical therapy.  He hated every minute of it!

I printed the Dustin Pike freebie digi (gotta love those freebies, huh?) on Neenah Solar White.  This cute little party animal was colored with Copic markers and I used the out-of-the-box technique to cut him out.  The candle's flame and balloons have Glossy Accents on them and the hat has Sparkly Fluff and Distress Stickles.  The sentiment and Basic Black CS is from Stampin' Up.  The DP is from City Park.  The brown DP was put through my Big Shot with a Cuttle Bug EF to give it texture.


Copic coloring:
Bear:  E55, E53, E37, E34, E33, N6, N4, N2  Cupcake:  RV17, RV11, RV10, Y38, YR00, Y13, Y11  Party hat & balloons:  Y38, YR00, YG23, YG21, RV11, RV10, Y13, Y11  Box:  BG15, BG10, RV17  Ground:  C3, C1  Sky:  BG10, 0

Thanks for stopping by!
