It's Birthday Time with Cheery Lynn Designs


For my card for Cheery Lynn Designs,  I found this image I had colored last year for a Copic class I was teaching and thought it was time to add it to a card.  I created my card base using Scalloped Rectangle Reflections Boutique dies.  I love that these dies are open ended because you can make about any size you want with them.  I started with a folded piece of card stock 5 3/4 x 6.  I only wanted the scallops on 3 sides, I think it makes a more masculine card.  I used the same dies to make the center scalloped strip on my card.  The image was die cut with a Silver Coved Rectangle die and backed with a matching Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique die.  I added a Pocket Watch w/Angel Wing, another masculine die.  And the last step was the sentiment stamped onto a Tags 1 and backed with the same.

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:

And don't forget to check out this week's Tickled Pink challenge.  You still have time to enter for a chance to win a $20 store credit to Cheery Lynn Designs.

Several people have asked about the image, it is called Nathan and is a digital image from Sugar Nellie.  You can see another example of him here as a blond.

Great card/ Like the use of your dies and the image is colored so well, hair is perfect. Wish I could capture that technique. The clock adds a different touch. Edna
