Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone.  Happy Hump Day.  Hope your week is going well.

I am over at Imagine That! Digis by Kris as a Guest Designer today.  She sent me this lovely digi to play with.

 (click on the image to take you directly to the store)

I couldn't resist using it for a friends little girl, who turned 5 on Monday, and this is the card I made for her.

If you look at this close up of the digi - you can see I actually digitally coloured her, using the Silhouette Design software and the fill function.  The only pencil colouring I did, was the hair, skin, legs, and grass. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut her out.

My papers are all from a Recollections stack called All Season Papers.  I also used a sketch from the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  Here is the sketch.

I inked all the edges of all the layers and then popped the image up on some pop dots to add some depth.  I also added a flat backed gem to the flower - from my UK stash, so bought many moons ago :-)

For the inside I used the base papers from the front and some teeny butterflies to add some interest to the inside.

It's Imagine That's 1st Birthday next week and we are having a blog hop to celebrate - so I hope you will come back next week and take part in the hop :-)
