Hyacinth Birthday Card

I love the images at Delicious Doodles,  for coloring with my Copics.  She adds some shading which makes shading the images a lot easier when coloring.  Something I am still working on.   I chose this Hyacinth image to color for a card for my son's girlfriend.
I colored the flowers using some of the RV colors and then glossed over them with Diamond Glaze.

  I mounted the image on a couple shades of purple/lavender that I punched the corners and tucked each corner under, then added a purple brad.
The green border along the side I cut using the Elegant edges cartridge and added some small green pearl to the center wholes. 
The happy birthday is a Gina K stamp that I stamped and heat embossed on a label I cut using A Child's Year cartridge.
I love my Imagine as I could look up the RGB codes for Stampin Up paper and print the exact color I need.  The border and the label were both printed and cut and filled with Certainly Celery color.

 The inside I finished using some of the same paper from the front and punched the edges.  The sentiment is computer generated.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog, please leave me a comment and let me know you were here to take a peak.
