Purple Aurora Birthday*

Good morning everyone!! I am off until Monday!!  Yippee!!  I'm hoping to go to the movies with Kevin either today or tomorrow. We will see how that works out. Yesterday was a full day of work and I brought some work home as well. I need to finish up a bit today and then put it away until Monday! What I really want to do is color! And I need to do a card with some embroidery on it. That will be a challenge!  Alright.. enough of me :)  On to the card for today:

For this card I've used Aurora Gift from The East Wind. She is colored with Copic Markers and a small amount of layering was done. The flower background was cut using a My Favorite Things die. The inside rectangle is also a My Favorite Thing die and I inked a bit of purple around the edge. I added a bit of purple lace and then the sparkle fiber on top of it. I made a little pompom with the fiber and added the gem on top of it. The ribbon on the gift has some clear Wink of Stella on it.  On the inside I added some additional lace and sparkle fiber.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Dress: C00, C1, C3; V12, V15, V17
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13, R20
  • Ribbons: V12, V15, V17; BG01, BG05, BG07; Y04, Y15, YR24; YG05, YG09; C00, C5
  • Gift: BG01, BG05, BG07; Y0000, Y04, Y15, YR24
  • Eyes: BV31, BV1, BV04
  • Hair: E21, E97, E99, E39, E59

This girly design has a soft and delicate feel to it. Love how you did the background and how the flowers of her dress pick up the color of the background.

This is a beautiful birthday card and will make whomever receives it feel so special. I can also see that you could switch this up with different colors and patterns and really have even more fun with it. Love that you not only used color but also a lot of great texture that makes it POP! It's clean, colorful, and really happy! Thank you for sharing it with us at Opus Gluei, I love to see the creativity our challenges inspire. I hope that you return for our next challenge as well, will enjoy your take on it.
