Birthday Sundaes Challenge #12

I am so enjoying being creative this weekend. It feels great to get some projects done. I hope that you all have been creative this weekend too.

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at Birthday Sundaes. Our challenge this week is Anything Goes Birthday. And we have a sponsor this week. Jodie from Bugaboo Stamps is offering 7 digital images to our winner. The design team got to choose an image to use on our cards. Check out all of the images Jodie has available. So many neat ones.

I chose the Birthday Monkey topper here. And here is my card:

When Kristie (owner of Birthday Sundaes) and I went shopping a couple of weeks, she kind of introduced me to Copic markers. Of course I had heard of them and was pretty curious about them, but I didn't have any. I was kind of afraid to get any. She explained a little about them and suggested that I check out some videos. I have checked out a few videos, but I need to really learn a whole lot more about them. Since our challenge this week was to use a digital image, I took the plunge and bought my first Copics. I got 5, and used them to color the cute little monkey. The colors I used are BG45, E02, E15, R24 and YG63. I can see this is going to be a new obsession.

Go check out what images the rest of the team chose and the wonderful cards they created with them.
