Big birthday wishes

Wow, half way through the month already ... January always seems to be a bit of a long stretch, and an even longer stretch to Pay Day!  Anyway, it's reminder time over at Naughty or Nice - this month's theme is 'new' - so new baby, new job, new stash, etc.  Add your card over at the blog and have a peep at the Troublemakers' creations.

For my card I've used some new stash ... this fab birthday image from Penny Black :)

Coloured with watercolour pencils, sparkle added to the icing, and clear gloss to the candles.  I inked up my BG and then added a few splatters for good measure.


  1. This is great Lynne! I wish I'd had a lovely wall background for the card I've just made for NoN Feb - would've looked much better for it I'm sure! Jo x

  2. So cute! (You should come over to my other team, Snarky Stampers, we're featuring stencils!)

  3. Super cute Lynne. I love your soft brick background.

  4. I just love it when you add a background to your images. The bricks are great. I always liked January for the possibility of a 3rd paycheck, as I was paid every two weeks.

  5. It's really sweet card. Thanks for joining us at Dream Valley Challenges .Neva
