Happy Birthday

Morning Peeps!  Welcome to my first entry in the brand new challenge blog -- A Beautiful Mess.  This site is just starting up.  Hop on over and join in the fun. It is always Anything Goes and will be open for a month.  New challenges will be posted on the last Friday of the month.  Our sponsor for this first challenge is Sassy Studio.  I have used Buttercream Babe-Garden Party.

I printed and cut the image using my Cameo.  I then colored it with Copic markers and used Wink of Stella glitter pens on the deep pink flowers and the handle of the umbrella,  I used Nuvo Crystal Drops on the tassels of the umbrella and for the three green dots.  I love the Nuvo Crystal Drops because you can make the dots any size you want.  I made the bow out of a scrap of ribbon that was not big enough to do anything else with.  Because the printed paper had gold foil stars in it (hard to see in the photo), I used the gold ink to sponge the edges.  I also added Glossy Accents to the bow to make it stand out more.

Recollections cardstock
KaiserCraft 6.5x6.5 Hidden Treasures Paper Pad
Silhouette Cameo
Copic markers
Wink of Stella Glitter Pens
Glossy Accents
