Birthday Balloons

dscdt15thjuly 001

At Digi Sketch Challenge we have another new challenge and the theme this fortnight is Layer It Up.We have the super A Day For Daisies as our sponsor.

It’s the lovely Sharon’s turn to host and here’s her fabby sketch :

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used the sweet Birthday Invitation by A Day for Daisies and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers.I tried a different hair colour combo which I think turned out a little Hayley Williams-esque (Paramore’s lead vocalist) but I like it 🙂 Her dress is  paper pieced with the reverse side of the flower paper and shaded it with  Copics.The palest colour showing is actually the paper.IRL it really adds depth to the image.I trimmed the image down allowing the balloon to drift over the top edge.I love these beautiful First Edition papers and was waiting for the perfect opportunity.This gorgeous image was it.I die cut the shape underneath her for some interest.Pearl brads have been added to embellish and the sentiment has been stamped directly onto the background paper.
