Happy Times

Good Evening to all my new crafty friends and followers

Today has been a very busy day for me in my piece of crafty heaven!  I have a really busy week this week and I am off to Leeds for the day tomorrow so my post for tomorrow is scheduled to go live at 9.00 am.  Then from Thursday to Sunday I have 2 lots of designs to get done.

Well today's topper has been lying around since I got back from my last trip to Leeds so I thought it should be finished and made into a card.  The stamp is from LOTV and is called Happy Times, I started colouring this in using Promarker and finished it off using Spectrum Noirs.

Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is from Kanban Crafts, the first layer and second layer have been cut out using one of my Spellbinder dies.  The first layer is from my stash and has a lovely texture to it.  The second layer is from My Minds Eye Away We Go.
2.  I stamped the image and coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs and then distressed the outter and blended in using Dew Drops Brillance Cosmic Copper.
3.  I have added the sentiment which says Happy Birthday.
4.  To finish off I have added brown and copper cardcandy.

Thank you for stopping by Today
