Have Fun Birthday Card

I have been playing with the Build-a-Sketch challenge from over at Stamping Vacation.  This challenge is due 4th September so plenty time to join in and have a chance of winning the $25.00 voucher to 7 Kids College Fund.  Denise has given us a list of shapes to cut and each month selects four of these shapes to create your sketch.  So this month we have to use Numbers 1, 6, 10 and 12.

Now this is the card that I came up with.  Yes, I have used another Stella image from Bugaboo.  I have coloured her with my watercolour pencils and aqua pen.  Added some glitter and some Dimensional magic to her glasses.  I have then layered the card up using a pre-scored gloss card from Blue Edge Crafts, bright blue card which I have run through the 'Diamonds in the Rough' embossing folder.  Then added some yellow and light blue.  The hat and greeting on the light blue card are a rub-on.  Finished with black border stickers from the Sticker Store.  I am also going to enter this card into Stamping Vacations 'Colour Combo' Challenge which closes 6th August and asks for Bright Blue, Yellow and Light Blue.

Happy Thursday everyone.
