Animal Friends

Hello my friends! Hope you had lovely weekend. I'm so happy that spring is finally here. Snow is gone and ice drifted away from the river. It is so strange that Snowdrops, Spring Snowflakes and Hepatica are blooming in the same time. They are all beautiful, so better late then never :)
It is a new week, that means a new challenge at the Paper Makeup Stamps blog. This week it's all about Animal Friends. And don't forget to use a digi image on your project.

I used lovely Olive the Otter on my Birthday card. Image is colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I also added stickles to the frosting of the cupcake and Glossy Accents to the heart shape cherry and Olive eyes and nose. Stickles are also added to the resin flower and panel behind otter. Resin flower was pale pink at first but I recolored it with Flexmarkers.
I made also made some faux stitches on the card. I made small holes with paper piercer and draw white wonky stitches with white gel pen.

I wanted to make a birthday card but after finishing, it looks a bit like Christmas card. I hope it's only me who thinks so. All the glitter and this frame die cut reminds me Christmas.  Oh boy... Snow just melted and I'm thinking already about Christmas. Bad thoughts, go away! I need sunshine, warm weather and lots of green around me and of course colorful flowers...

Inside of the card is very simple (at least this time I got it done). I clued the strip of the same designer paper inside and the same cupcake as Olive is holding in front of the card.

  12. Your birthday card is lovely! I love the faux stitching and may have to try that. I have a sewing machine but the idea of pulling it out makes me tired lol. I am also sewing challenged. I was kicked out of sewing in high school because the teacher told me some woman just DONT sew.
    So thanks for the idea. Hope the sun keeps shining for you.
    Have a great week
