My girlfriend, Joy, had her birthday (her 'umpteenth 28th' birthday) this weekend so I made her this card to brighten her day! This little cutie is holding a giant cup of hot chocolate, which would totally make Joy's day (mmmm... chocolate). Joy, if you're reading- I hope you had a delightful day and I wish you much chocolate on every day in the coming year that is not delightful in and of itself :)
I started colouring up Alice by Christy Croll (Stamping Bella) at Copic Club the other night (thanks for the tips, Cheri!) and decided to match her up with these fabulous papers by Crate Paper. I seriously can't get enough of the Restoration collection and every time I make a card with them I think it's my new favorite. These papers just make me HAPPY. My fave is the background piece with colourful doilies on it, but I was thrilled when I went to assemble this card and noticed the dot paper too- could it be more perfect with Alice? I think not! You can barely see it, but I stamped a happy birthday definition over the dots for some extra texture. This card is based on the current Friday Sketchers Sketch- love it and will probably use this layout again :) That's all for now- hope this card brings some JOY to your day, too!
