Kenny K's Krafty Krew Challenge # 134 -- Happy Birthday!

This week it's Kenny K's Krafty Krew's Team B's turn to take the challenge, which is "Happy Birthday!".

Our first sponsor is Kenny K's Digital Downloads Kenny K who is giving 5 Digis of the winner's choice!

The second sponsor is Marianne Designs, who is giving a stamp and die to the winner.

I used a sketch from Die Cut Divas -- Challenge #105, Try a Sketch.

Here's my card!

I used Happy Hour by Kenny K's Digital Downloads. She was printed onto Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic markers, which I'll list below. Her martini glass, pearls, and lipstick with enhanced with my trusty Clear Gelly Roll Glaze pen which added dimension and shine.

The patterned papers are fairly old. The card front layer and the layer under the image are from a scrap from the Kewl collection by Fancy Pants. I still have a full sheet of it in my stash. The dotted and leaf-print papers are from the Jack & Jill 6x6 pad from the Quite Contrary 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. All papers were edged with China Blue Distress ink.

By the way some people have asked me what I use to sponge and my answer is a lot of things, but I do love my Finger Daubers and Ink Sweeper Daubers by Tsukineko.

The tiny star die cuts and the little sentiment tag die cuts are from old QuicKutz dies. I think the stars are actually from an alphabet set. That die has a star, an x, a tiny heart, and a swirl. The little tags are from an old file tab set. Most useful and good to check through my QuicKutz shape binder to remind myself what's in there!

I did add a coat of Clear Gelly Roll Glaze pen to the stars to make 'em shiny. I love shiny things.

Thanks for visiting today!
