7 Kids College Fund Challenge #7 - Birthday

Happy Wednesday!

This week, 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog has a really simple challenge - Birthday!

I made my card for my cousin's birthday in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My cousin is a two-time survivor. She amazes me with her upbeat attitude and bubbly personality. 

Here is my card...

You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund


I made the background behind Tilda. I used the technique Perfect Distress from Tim Holtz Book, A Compendium of Curiosities, page 38. I used pop dots to layer Tilda over this paper to make her stand out.

I paper pieced some Bella Rose paper for Tilda's dress. I colored the remainder of Tilda with a combination of Copics and distress inks. 

I used my Copics Airbrush System to get just the right colors for my roses.

Here is a list of all items used:
Stamps: Tilda Wants a Hug, En Francais, Sweet Little Sentiments (SU!)
Paper: Bella Rose (SU!), LillyKate (Basic Grey)
Accessories: Copics Airbrush System, Pearls, Flowers, Perfect Pearls, Rose leaf and branch punch, ribbon, lace, DMC floss

The sketch is from Hanna's Hobbyblog. If you have not seen her work, go check out her blog. She is a wonderful artist.

Thanks for stopping by today. Check back tomorrow for another Cute Card Thursday Challenge.
