Magical Birthday

This is my last post as a guest designer over at the Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

The challenge this fortnight is to use the recipe Wood, Dots, and Twine.

This is another first for me. The Shaker Card. Took a little more time and effort than I was expecting but I guess I need more practice. Everything takes longer when it's your first time, right? :)

I used this adorable 'Pure Magic' stamp set by Sugar Pea Designs stamped up in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Simon 120 lb card stock. I colored him up with a combo of Copic markers (skin, hair and everything yellow) and Prismacolor pencils (clothing and rabbit). 

I used Stampin' Up's Basic Gray as my mat embossing with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The veneer stars are from Studio Calico. The twine is Martha Stewart.  The star confetti was a RAK gift and the micro beads are Martha Stewart (form Terri). 

Laying down so you can see the bits and pieces a little better.

On the inside, I used a sentiment from the set. 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
