Make a Wish

Hello.  I finally got around to making a card because yes, another birthday is coming up soon, plus Eva had to tell me about that Tiddly Inks sale!


So this is one of those cards that actually took me forever to put together and it still looks a little odd.  Maybe I'm out of practice since I haven't made anything in so long.  Anyhow, I didn't want to waste paper so I just left it like this.  Hopefully the recipient won't care, it's the birthday thought that counts, right?



First I printed out the image a little too big so this is actually a 5x7 card.  I thought it might be easier to color (and stay in the lines) if it was larger.  I realize I'm kind of a messy colorer.  Luckily I could erase the stray colored pencil marks.  Not so lucky with the heart flowers since I used a Bic marker and some RV Copics!  I actually got the 3 Copics in the RV family from Michaels when they had a 50% off coupon.  Was that bad of me to take my son and give him a coupon too so I could buy 2 Copics at a time, since it was only 1 coupon per customer?  Anyhow, coloring the dress messed me up, but I didn't want to toss it since I already spent so much time coloring the face and hair.  Then I had to look for a sketch, luckily I found the March Sketch For You to Try that seemed to fit.  I was trying to find a way to fit the cute heart flower border that came with the digi, but oh well.  Ended up stamping and white embossing the PTI background basics hearts since I couldn't find matching patterned paper.  Maybe I should have gotten the new monochromatic patterned paper packs.  Going with the heart theme, used the PTI Tag-its (plus I saw it just sitting there in the front of the box since I just used it for making school valentines).  Also used PTI cardstock in Raspberry Fizz and Plum Pudding, and the light pink is Bazzill.  Photo corner is a Martha Stewart punch.

OK, that's about it for me...for probably a while...I should actually be studying...my brain doesn't seem to function so well in study mode anymore...takes me 10 times as long to read stuff nowadays...
