Hip birthday

Found a little time for crafting this weekend but not as much as I wanted - part of it down to baking cakes for work because it was my birthday last week.  Who started this daft tradition!

Anyway...... This is one if found time to make - the image is Lucy Style I love You from The East Wind.  I've coloured the image in a combination of ProMarkers and Copics and a little bit of biro.  The image is mounted onto some black card stock to frame it.

I wanted to keep a punk theme so I kept the whole card red and black. The papers are from Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Designs Father Knows Best and Heartfelt.  I've also,used some dare red and black card stock.

The sentiment is from Lïli of the Valley Art Pad 8, I've added a splash of colour to it with a red ProMarker and black biro.  The final touch are some black self adhesive gems.

Back to work tomorrow :( hope you all had a great weekend

A rockin' card, Andrea, and a fabulous colour scheme!

Sadly, the background paper (which is gorgeous btw!) being patterned means this doesn't fit the CAS theme at CRAFT Challenge. :( Please do join in again!

love Mags B x
