I created the card using a digi image from 2 Cute Ink. The image is called Celebration Penguin.
I colored the image with my Copic markers. For the emblem, I used a chipboard number and covered it with some Martha Stewart fine glitter. I pasted it to a circle shape that I cut out using one of my Spellbinder dies. I used Stickles to create little confetti dots all around the image and then cut the little flags by hand and pasted them on some bakers twine I had.
I really like the easel cards, as you may know from some of my previous posts. I did this card as an easel as well and put three little rhinestones to hold it in a "standing" position. I find on these Easel cards, if you put something down for the front of the card to rest on, it will stand up a lot better for you and not want to fall over quite as easily.
Oh my garsh he is so handsome!! I love this little guy. It's hard to believe a year has passed. I am truly blessed with my children and grandchildren.
September is a busy birthday month for us and I have several posts lined up to get out. I know this will be hard for you to believe because I am terrible at getting my posts out (hey I am a busy lady! haha)---But anywho, I do have several things lined up so stay tuned.
I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having. Have a great day!
