Happy Bird-day Reese...

Oldest Grandson's 16th!  
I think he will forgive the cutsy.


  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to give him dimension. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the images.  The layers were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.
  • Sentiment from SU.
  • Balloon, flower & package from the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy Accessory Set.

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP used for the background from stash.
  • Hand drawn thought bubble.
  • Green, grosgrain ribbon from stash.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:

    10. Tee hee. This card made me grin. I love the bright colours too!

      I wanted to pop by to thank you for the lovely comments you leave. Lots of DT commenters just do a standard copy and paste message (and I don't begrudge them for that, I know life is busy). But I wanted to let you know how I appreciate the extra time you put into it by saying something specific (and complimentary too :-)). So, thank you!!
