Today is a very special day in my family! Today is my Mom's birthday... HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!... and yes, she was born on Friday the 13th! This week is FULL of birthdays for me; my sister Christie, my "sister-in-law" Kelly and my Grandma (she would have turned 100 this year) all celebrate on the 11th, my Mom's is the 13th and my cousin Sarah's is on the 14th! That's 5 birthdays in 4 days! So in honour of all the birthday women in my life, I thought I'd share a birthday card today...
Classic White Cardstock, stamped my cupcake in Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink and masked it off. Then I used my Copic air brush and coloured my back ground using two shades of yellow. I finished colouring my image using the following Copic Collections:
Country Time Christmas" stamp set using Memento "Angel Pink" ink around the edges of the oval.
Poppy Paper Collection. I used the same cardstock to mat all of the layers of my card. For all of my patterned papers, I used the "Up, Up and Away" 6x6 paper pad from My Mind's Eye. It was full of gorgeous feminine papers... perfect for a birthday card!
For my card design, I used this week's Splitcoaststampers weekly sketch, SC466:
