CAS358 - HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Hey there, it's another rainy day here on the Oregon Coast...my favorite coloring weather!  Today's CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers is to use the word "happy" on our projects.  Perfect timing since I have two January birthdays I need to make cards for!  The My Favorite Things Color Challenge #36 screamed elephant, and I couldn't wait to ink up Birdie Brown's Adorable Elephants so it worked out great.  I also decided to use MFT's current Sketch Challenge #261...what a fun combination!


The background was sponged with multiple Memento blue inks.  The elephant and balloons were stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut then glued directly to the sponged background.  The "happy" die cut is a Whimsy die that was cut twice to give stability and a little extra dimension.  The top layer was colored with Copics to match the balloon.  The banner is from MFT Blueprints 26 and was also colored with Copics.  I moved the banner to the right hand side of the card for a little extra balance.  Copic colored Flat Bottom Clouds and a Clear Wink of Stella pen complete the card. 

COPIC COLORING:
ELEPHANT:  C6, C4, C2, C0, R000  BUTTERFLY, BIRTHDAY BANNER:  C0, R000  BALLOON, HAPPY:  YG17, YG25, YG03, YG21  CLOUDS:  C0
