A Birthday Card Using Favorite Color Combo

Hey there and welcome. This time, I have an OLC using my favorite color combo: kraft cardstock + any other colors. After stamping the adorable image (it's been in my stash for about four years), I colored it with Prisma colored pencils. As I love to have crisp black lines, I re-stamped the image. It is slightly offset as I had to eyeball it: I forgot to use a stamping tool from the beginning, but the re-stamping turned out to be okay. For stamping the sentiment, I grabbed my stamping tool because I really didn’t want to mess up anything at this point.

I hope you like how it turned out and thanks for stopping by.



Stamp sets used: Cute as a Bug (Penny Black), Hang in There (Lawn Fawn)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

AAA Birthday Challenge Game #25

Di’s Digi Challenge-Birthday Wishes

As You Like It Challenge-Favorite Coloring Medium 

(This is a really tough choice to make, but I think Prisma colored pencils are my favorite at the moment. I used to love watercolor pencils, but because of my finicky printer, which cannot print on thicker paper, I am not able to use them on my digis. I also love that Prisma pencils can be used on Kraft card stock like I did for making this card.)
