Happy Birthday to a Wonderful Friend !

I'd like to share with you a birthday card that I made for a good friend of mine. She loves her holidays and so when I saw this card on a blog the other day I just had to purchase the image from Mo's Digital Pencil and create my card. I used the original card layout for inspiration and changed a few things to make it appropriate for my friend.


The two digi's can be found here and here.
I coloured both the background and sunbather with Promarkers, cut her out and stuck her on to the background and put shading around the edge of the towel to ground the image. I used polka dot papers and buttons to carry on the theme of her bikini. In my stash I had a starfish charm and a small pair of silver coloured sunglasses which went beautifully with the beach theme also. Here is a close up of her enjoying her cocktail...

 


I'd like to enter this card in to these challenges:
Mo's Digital Pencil - 'H is for'........ Hot
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

I love Mo's images, I have quite a few now, they are so easy to colour and uncanny in that they resemble someone you know, lol.

Thanks for joining me today,

See you all soon,

Lorraine
