Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge #37 - Happy Birthday!

It's Chris's turn to host the challenge at Happileigh Scrappin' this week.  Since it was her son's birthday on the 28th, she decided this would be a good week for a Birthday Challenge. 

I decided to try a vintage look for my card this week.

Happy Birthday Tatters

Below is a close-up side view to show the popped up flower vase and how I threaded the cake trim flowers through the punched chain on the side.

Images used:
Tatter's Birthday Cake and Sentiment
Happy Everything Vase

* All coloring on this card is done with Copic Markers
* Print on white cardstock and color - Tatters Birthday Cake and Sentiment - cut cardstock to 5 1/8" W x 5 7/8" H
* Print a second birthday cake, color and cut out just the flowers on the cake trim
* Print, color and cut out the Happy Everything Vase
* Using a ruler and Copic Multiliner pen, draw a line behind the cake and color the backgrounds to make it look like the cake and vase are sitting on a table in a painting
* Punch and color Martha Stewart Bangle Chain Double Edge punch. 
* Thread cut out flower trim through the chain and glue on side of main image
* Bend the vase and flowers slightly to give them shape and pop up the center of the vase and flowers with dimensional foam tape.
* Run a Copic brown marker around the edge of the main image, then mat on pink cardstock
* Mat this on SU green striped design paper and again run the edge of a green Copic marker aound the edge of the green dp

We hope you will join us for a fun challenge this week at Happileigh Scrappin'.  Remember, if you use one of Leigh's Happileigh Scrappin images on your project you will also be entered in a second drawing for just HLSC projects.  We're looking forward to seeing all of your wonderful entries.

Have a great Monday.

This is just gorgeous. I love your coloring, and how you popped up the vase for dimension. Your trellis with the roses woven through is just beautiful!

Your colouring is totally amazing on this card, it all adds such depth and texture and I think I NEED that MS punch.... LOL
