Happy Friday everyone, and a 3 day weekend for me, gotta love it! As I'm writing this post I'm in the middle of tears - why you ask, well I'm watching Hello/Goodbye. OMG it's such a great show, it is filmed in Toronto at the Pearson International Airport, and the host talks to people that are waiting for the arrivals of loved ones that have been absent from Canada or leaving Canada to go abroad anywhere from a few weeks to years. Oh my goodness, it's such a happy/good feeling show (happy cry)when loved ones are coming home but for the ones that are leaving (sad cry) it pulls at your heart strings. I am such a 'softee' I cry so easily. Okay, show is over, lets get on with my card.
I was asked by a co-worker to make a '50th' birthday card for a friend of hers. She wanted on of the AI images, so I decided to use Celeste. Doesn't she look like she is having a good time? Celeste is ready to party!
I used copics to colour and the ground shading was done with prismacolour pencils. I cut the image out using spellbinders square die and then layered this onto papers by MME - Stella & Rose - Hattie papers.
I added some glossy accents to her glasses and the wine glass. I was going to put '50' on the card front, but the number dies I had were too large. Digging through my embellishments I came across some glitter chip board pieces which seem to work perfectly.
Enjoy your weekend, for those on the east coast, be safe - stay warm.
