Mo's Digital Challenge 13 - Birthday

January's hostess, Lisa Cook has set this week's Mo's Digital Challenge theme to Birthday.  So I decided to make an easel card using Mo's Birthday Hamster.

I began by sizing and printing this cute little guy onto Cryogen white paper with my inkjet printer.  First, I measured my largest Spellbinders Large Label so I knew what size to make the image.  Copics used:
Hamster - E21, E33, R20
Icing - RV00, RV02
Cake - RV21, RV23
Paper - E41, E43
Shadow - W1
I added Pink Spica pen to the sprinkles for a little extra bling.  I also used RV25 on the gems and the ribbon so they matched the card.  The DP is from Doodlebug, the saying is computer generated.

Here is a side view to show you what the easel card fold looks like.  It is a fun card to make, lots of room inside to added a personal note or another saying.

Be sure to stop by Mo's Challenge blog to see what else the design team has created.  And please join in on the fun for a chance to win an image from Mo's Digital Pencil Too
