A Special Day

I'd like to take this opportunity to send a big BIRTHDAY SHOUT-OUT to Monica.

You and your friendship are very special to me and I hope you'll have a great day! Hopefully, you'll get a tad more than just 'cool wood sticks'.

I made this card with two of Hambo's fun new summer stamps and the card is from Michael's $1 bin. The blue ribbon along the side of the card is actually printed on, but even in person, it looks very real. The Popsicle Stand was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and the brilliant colours on the popsicle was achieved with Copic markers. Yes, after years of talking myself out of it, I have finally relented and taken the Copic plunge. There's a bit of a learning curve for me with these markers, but I'll keep at it. :)

These adorable images are available at Hambo Stamps.

Popsicle Stand - 3401

Why not check them out today and wish Monica a happy Birthday at the same time?

Cheerio - Isabelle

GREAT card!! I was wondering how you got the intensity of the popsicle. And that printed ribbon is wild. It looks real. Have fun practicing with your Copics!
