Happy Birthday Dana...
Happy Birthday to you! So glad to be sending you these wishes my friend. I've chosen to color up a Cristy Croll image called Cuppycake with a Huggabugg on top. She's just so irresistible and I know she's sitting atop a mound of frosting and you hate frosting but it still looks pretty.
I started by stamping this Huggabugg onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento tuxedo black ink and coloring with copics. I then added shading with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. The cupcake is adorned with glitter and her antennae with rhinestones. The sentiment (one of my favorite Bella's that isn't currently available) was stamped using the stamp-a-ma-jig so I could ensure the placement of each word. The sentiment panel was cut with various oval Nesties and was also adorned with rhinestones. The leaves were cut with an EK Success punch. The layout is another one from Karen Giron and the SSSC #148 and it looked perfect for my image.
The papers are also from the Echo Park Victorian Garden 6x6 paper pack. I couldn't resist the musical note paper...can't you just hear me singing Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you...
Have a great year Danabella!
