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.
