BORN TO BE WILD

Hey there, here's another card for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive through Splitcoast Stampers.  Jeanne just had her birthday (happy birthday Jeanne!) and her challenge, Happy Birthday!, is her wish that everyone is able to have another birthday to celebrate with their loved ones.  She wants us to create a birthday card that will bring a smile to someone's life.

I decided to go with an Our Craft Lounge set called The Tribe.  This set just cracks me up and I'm a little sad it is on the retiring list.  The plus side is that it is currently 40% off (link is in the "Supplies" section at the bottom of this post).  I'm sure hoping one of the breast cancer ladies with a sense of humor gets this one!  My little friend here was stamped on white card stock, masked so the sign could be behind her then colored with Copic markers. 

The designer paper is from DCWV.  I've never colored on DP before, but I love how this turned out!  The animal print (I guess it might be Cheetah?) was the same shade or very close to the zebra print and I wanted it to match my gals shirt so I tested the markers on a scrap, liked what I saw then colored all of that paper to match.  You would think it was meant to be that color!  A brad was placed on the round sentiment panel and it was popped up on foam.  I guess that's about it for this one.

Copic coloring:
