Magic In The Air challenge #1

Well this is a new challenge blog I found thanks to Patti. The digi image was a free image on the new blog so I chose to use it for the first challenge (at least I think it is the first) The challenge blog is called There's Magic In The Air so pop on over and wish Nina good luck and while you are there take a look around. This challenge was all about celebration and I chose to make it a Happy Birthday celebration, after all being a new blog it has to have a BIRTHday doesn't it?? I used my Derwent watercolour pencils to colour Orson in and I really liked the way he turned out on SU Kraft cardstock. I had some Prisma glitter in my stash which is about 17 years old and still going strong for the icing on the cake and DCWV Recycled paper stack for the DP. Stampin' Up! for the sentiment, Kraft and Creamy Caramel cardstock. SU White gel pen for the little dot in Orsons eyes. Ribbon from my stash but I think it is American Craft Company. Enjoy!!


In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
