Happy Birthday Brother

I have made this card for my brother who's Birthday is today. I have stamped Beerafella out on to papertrey Ink CS and coloured him in with Copic markers and 'grounding' him with an A Muse oval. I have then cut him out and added him to the base with DST. The base has been made by layering up shades of blue CS on to white card blank and adding a strip of brown which has been wrapped round with ribbon to secure a ring pull in place with brads. I have then added two photo anchors with brads to the top left hand corner and covered a Craftwork Cards message with brown chalk ink then added this with 3D foam. I hope he likes it!

STAMPS: Beerafella by Stamping Bella, Essential Ovals by A Muse. INK: Airondack Pitch Black, ColorBox Creamy Brown, ColorBox Ice Jade. CS: Craft Creations, Papertrey Ink, Doodlebug Designs. ACCESSORIES: Anita's grosgrain ribbon, Papermania brads, Papermania photo anchors, Craftwork Cards Circle Message, Copic markers.
