1st Birthday

This is a card I created for our Great Nephew Scottie, who will be 1 year old next month.

 For this card, I chose to use Birthday Birdie from Doodle Pantry. I think this is one of the most adorable images for a 1st birthday card. The image, sentiment and designer paper are all from the set. I know I have said this before, but Laurie's designer papers are incredible. I took my color palette from the designer paper to color the image. I used the following Copic markers for this project: cupcake wrapper, candle, hat & some sprinkles - BG02, BG05, BG07 and BG09; candle flame, beak and feet - Y35 and Y38; ground - G40; some sprinkles and pom pom - V06 and V09; cake - E33; frosting - E40; bird and some sprinkles - Y02, Y04 and Y06. I also added some small clear crystals with the sprinkles to give it a look of sugar. I added a yellow balloon brad next to the sentiment. The image was layered onto a small piece of black card stock, then the designer paper and then yellow card stock.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:


  1. I agree...a great card for a 1st birthday. Great job on coloring and love that you added the crystals to give it the look of sugar. But be careful, some one like me just may want to go ahead and lick it...yum!
