Warm and Fuzzy Birthday Blessings

Hey everybody! I just finished this card for this week's color challenge, today's Ways to Use It challenge and one of this week's Mojo Monday sketches! This image is from one of this month's Our Daily Bread designs releases called Happy Birthday and it is so fun to color with copics! Such a versatile set! It's actually a watering can but I masked off the handle and spout so it would look more like a planter. I stamped the image twice so that I could cut out some of the flowers and paper tole them. I added Ivory Flower Soft for the WT to use something fuzzy on our project. The copics I used are C1,BG18,E00,E31,E33,E43,E51,E74,G21,G99. The image is layered with Taken with Teal and Vanilla and popped up over layers of Teal, Close to Cocoa, Close to Cocoa dsp, and Vanilla. The bottom cocoa strip is edged with an EK Success punch. The lacy border is cut with the Spellbinders Grand Classic Lace Border die. I sponged cocoa ink onto it before removing it from the die. I added some pretty lace sent to me by my friend Angel (Thanks Angel!) and some Martha Stewart butterflies and Hero Arts pearls. Also did some sponging here and there.

Stamps-ODBD Happy Birthday
